Tales from a Web Librarian

EdMedia Call for Papers - Ideas?

Laura, Meredith, and I would like to submit a proposal to AACE (Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education) for their 2015 EdMedia conference. This conference seems right up our alley as it focuses on the blending of education and technology as it relates to libraries. The proposal should focus on advancements in education technology including education projects, technical developments, products that address specific educational issues, or new avenues for edtech improvement. We have the flexibility to submit proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, tutorials, workshops, and demonstrations.

World Conference on Educational Media & Technology is an international conference, organized by the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE). This annual conference serves as a multi-disciplinary forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research, development, and applications on all topics related to multimedia, hypermedia and telecom- munications/distance education. EdMedia, the premiere international conference in the field, spans all disciplines and levels of education and annually attracts more than 1,500 leaders in the field from over 70 countries. We invite you to attend EdMedia and submit proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, tutori- als, workshops, posters/ demonstrations, corporate showcases/demos, and SIG discussions. The Conference Review Policy requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed by for inclusion in the conference program, proceedings book, and online proceedings available on EdITLib — Education and Information Technology Digital Library.

We think Vialogues would be a great product to present and maybe demo, but it might be worth exploring mSchool's relevance as well!

Here is the official conference poster. Please feel free to submit ideas! Thanks!
