This International Conference will bring together participants from many different disciplines and educational settings to discuss, illustrate and reflect on the impact of digital artefacts on learning practices.
The conference is in part a tribute to Seymour Papert, who died in July 2016. The conference will offer a broad platform for engagement with a variety of learning environments and will also showcase the achievements and prospects of the CONSTRUIT! project (which members of the Centre are partners in).
The key activities and topics of CONSTRUIT 2017 will be those associated with learning through making things-to-think-with. The organisers welcome contributions related to any learning activity of this nature, of which Seymour Papert’s constructionism is one instance, and making construals is another. Conference themes are:
- Principles and practices for making things-to-think-with
- Open educational resources (OERs) based on things-to-think-with
- Learning through making in the broader educational context.
Abstracts are due by 25 April 2017.
