[ecrea] CFP “Immersive Experiences in Later Age” in iLRN 2017

Mon Feb 20 17:14:27 GMT 2017

I would like to invite you to submit a paper to the Special Track “Immersive Experiences in Later Age” ( ), part of the 3rd Annual International Conference of the Immersive Learning ResearchNetwork – iLELA 2017, which will take place in June 26th - 29th, 2017, at Coimbra, Portugal.


Over the past few years, there has been an increasing interest in using the potential of digital technologies to involve the learner into role-playing, socially embedded interactions, and mixed-reality environments. Although these learning experiences tend to stem from the advancements in today’s society, age-related changes and media allocation in different generations pose many challenges to both immersive and inclusive learning experiences. The aim of this special track is to discuss the challenges and strategies used in the fields of Information and communication technologies and gerontagogy or educational gerontology, in order to extend technology-enhanced learning to older adults.


The topics of interest include (but not limited to):

• Theoretical framework or literature reviews related with the role of

technologies in gerontagogy

• Development of digital artifacts for immersive learning in later age

• Theories and practices related with learning environments and active


• Case studies of learning experiences in later age

• Approaches to learning experiences, memory plasticity and cognitive

training in the aging process

• Intergenerational learning experiences

• Technology-enhanced learning and aging

*Special Track Chairs*

• Ana Isabel Veloso ((aiv /at/ <mailto:(aiv /at/>), University of Aveiro, Dept. of Communication and Art, CIC.Digital/DigiMedia, Portugal

Important dates:

*February 24 - an extended abstract of 400 words*
