Description and Objectives

We cordially invite (learning) scientists to come and showcase your cool tools! Interactive Tools and Demos are intended to enable participants to get to know new interactive devices and environments that may be potentially interesting for teaching and learning, to explore designs for learning activities, or to try out and compare methods for research and practice. Presenters will have a time slot of 20-30 minutes, during which they are free to organize their demonstration in any way they choose (e.g., a demo of a tool, a combination of a demo and discussion of related research projects, etc.). Unique and creative, but feasible, demo forms are welcome. Proposals are NOT required to specify whether the scope for their submission is CSCL or LS, as they will both take place together at the Annual Meeting. Submissions may indicate coherence with the conference call for innovative technologies and learning environments. See the conference theme page for a description.

In the Interactive Tools and Demos Session, researchers of accepted proposals may showcase their interactive tools, get feedback, and find collaborators with whom to develop projects. In the proposals, we welcome suggestions of possible applications for learning of your submitted tools or demo.

Submission instructions

Please submit a description of your proposed demo session as a short paper (not to exceed 4 pages). It should follow the current version of the ISLS Author Guidelines and use the ISLS Template.

The proposal should be submitted via EasyChair at easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isls2023 by 20 January 2023, 23:59 PST.

The paper should be written with the reader of the conference proceedings in mind who may be reading the description after the event has taken place. The structure of the 4 pages is flexible, but it should specify how the technology can contribute to a specified instructional design or how it can support research in the learning sciences. Please include a description of your technological setup and possible interactive elements in a virtual session.
