TCC WORLDWIDE ONLINE CONFERENCE
April 12-14, 2011
Pre-conference: April 5, 2011

EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES: MAKING IT WORK

Submission deadline: January 28, 2011
Homepage: http://tcc.kcc.hawaii.edu

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

TCC 2011 invites faculty, support staff, librarians, counselors, student
affairs professionals, students, administrators, and educational
consultants to submit proposals for papers and general sessions.

THEME
The emergence of Web 2.0 created a global platform for communication,
collaboration, and sharing. People, technologies, and perspectives have
converged on the Internet that has spawned global communities and
platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

The Internet has changed education. Many issues and concerns, however,
have yet to be answered fully: How do faculty, staff, students and the
communities served collaborate and innovate to produce positive learning
outcomes? How can students learn through virtual worlds, educational
games, augmented realities, or the use of smart, mobile devices? What best
practices or choices have emerged in online learning? How do we keep up?
How can we support each other?

TOPICS
TCC invites papers and general sessions related to technology integrated
learning, open educational resources, distance learning, virtual
communities, and best choices in educational technologies. The
coordinators are looking for a broad range of submissions including, but
are not limited to:

- Perspectives and personal experiences with emerging learning technologies
- Case studies and progress in applying ICT and Web 2.0 tools for learning
- Technologies that enable communication, collaboration, creativity, and
sharing
- Building and sustaining communities of learners
- Instructional applications in virtual worlds
- Distance learning including mobile learning
- Open educational resources (OER)
- E-portfolios and assessment tools
- Student orientation and preparation
- Ubiquitous and lifelong learning
- Online student services and advising
- Managing information technology and change
- Global access and intercultural communication
- Educational technology in developing countries
- Educational game design, rubrics, and assessment
- Student success and assessment strategies online
- Professional development for faculty and staff
- Projects for seniors and persons with disabilities
- Online learning resources (library, learning centers, etc.)
- Social networking games and MMORPGs in education
- Augmented reality - blending virtual content in real environments
- Online, hybrid, or blended modes of technology enhanced learning
- Institutional planning and pedagogy facilitated by emerging technologies
- Gender equity, digital divide, intercultural understanding, and open access

sessions.
