LINKS was well represented at the recent CSCL conference in Gothenburg. Sweden. A Symposium entitled : Technology – Enhanced Learning Communities as a Continuum between Ambient to Designed: What Can We Learn by Synthesizing Multiple Research Perspectives was organized by Professor Yael Kali together with Adi Kidron. The Symposium was chaired by Prof. Paul Kirschner from The Open University of the Netherlands, who encouraged an active discussion around the posters presented at the Symposium. Dr. Christopher Hoadley from the NSF, took the role of discussant and provided the participants as well as the audience with valuable feedback and thought provoking questions.
In addition, other research was also presented at poster sessions thus showing the diversity and richness of research being done at various levels in LINKS.
