More than a decade has passed since the First International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) was held at Northwestern University in 1991. The conference has now become an established place for researchers to gather. The 2004 meeting is the first under the official sponsorship of the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS). The theme of this conference is "Embracing Diversity in the Learning Sciences." As a field, the learning sciences have always drawn from a diverse set of disciplines to study learning in an array of settings. Psychology, cognitive science, anthropology, and artificial intelligence have all contributed to the development of methodologies to study learning in schools, museums, and organizations. As the field grows, however, it increasingly recognizes the challenges to studying and changing learning environments across levels in complex social systems. This demands attention to new kinds of diversity in who, what, and how we study; and to the issues raised to develop coherent accounts of how learning occurs. Ranging from schools to families, and across all levels of formal schooling from pre-school through higher education, this ideology can be supported in a multitude of social contexts. The papers in these conference proceedings respond to the call.

Situated at the intersection of two of the most important areas in educational research today a " literacy and technology a " this handbook draws on the potential of each while carving out important new territory. It provides leadership for this newly emerging field, directing scholars to the major issues, theoretical perspectives, and interdisciplinary research pertaining to new literacies. Reviews of research are organized into six sections: Methodologies Knowledge and Inquiry Communication Popular Culture, Community, and Citizenship: Everyday Literacies Instructional Practices and Assessment Multiple Perspectives on New Literacies Research FEATURES Brings together a diverse international team of editors and chapter authors Provides an extensive collection of research reviews in a critical area of educational research Makes visible the multiple perspectives and theoretical frames that currently drive work in new literacies Establishes important space for the emerging field of new literacies research Includes a unique Commentary section: The final section of the Handbook reprints five central research studies. Each is reviewed by two prominent researchers from their individual, and different, theoretical position. This provides the field with a sense of how diverse lenses can be brought to bear on research as well as the benefits that accrue from doing so. It also provides models of critical review for new scholars and demonstrates how one might bring multiple perspectives to the study of an area as complex as new literacies research. The Handbook of Research on New Literacies is intended for the literacy research community, broadly conceived, including scholars and students from the traditional reading and writing research communities in education and educational psychology as well as those from information science, cognitive science, psychology, sociolinguistics, computer mediated communication, and other related areas that find literacy to be an important area of investigation.

The term Intelligent Environments (IEs) refers to the physical spaces in which IT and other pervasive computing technologies are integrated and used to achieve specific goals for the user, the environment or both. The ultimate objectives of IEs are enriching user experience, enabling better management and increasing user awareness of that environment. This book presents the proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Intelligent Environments, held in Seoul, Korea, in August 2017. The conference provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners from computer science, electronic engineering, building architecture, art and design, sociology, government and education to present theoretical and practical results related to the development and applications of Intelligent Environments. IE’17 focuses on the development of advanced Intelligent Environments, as well as other newly emerging and rapidly evolving topics. The book also includes the proceedings of the following associated workshops, held during the first 2 days of the conference, which emphasize the multi-disciplinary and transversal aspects of IEs: the 6th International Workshop on the Reliability of Intelligent Environments (WoRIE'17); the 1st International Workshop on Intelligent Systems for Agricultural Production and Environmental Protection (ISAPEP’17); the 1st Workshop on Citizen Centric Smart Cities Solutions (CCSCS'17); and the 1st International Workshop on Advanced Multiple Access in Mobile Telecommunications (AMAMT'17). Providing a state-of-the-art overview of the discipline, this book will be of interest to professionals from a diversity of fields whose work involves the development or application of Intelligent Environments.
