Concepts and methods for exploring the future of learning with digital technologies

Objective

Very little of the transformation that has accompanied digital technologies is reflected in the practice of learning and teaching, or in the quality of research. Kaleidoscope's central aim is to fill these gaps in research by:
(1)Integrating existing European initiatives to develop a rich, culturally diverse and coherent theoretical and practical research foundation for research and innovation,
(2)Develop new tools and methodologies that operationalise an interdisciplinary approach to research on learning with digital technologies at a European-wide level.

Kaleidoscope integrates existing research to develop new concepts and methodologies from a multi disciplinary and cross-cultural perspective that includes:
(i) Foundations in the cognitive and learning sciences, including a socio cultural pespective, to strengthen the development of educational technologies,
(ii) Conceptual and methodological bridges between educational, social and cognitive sciences, and emerging technologies,
(iii)Principled design for promoting technological development enabling interactive, intelligent and cooperative learning environment,
(iv) Structural and organizational models for integrating technology-enhanced learning into organizations,
(v) Novel computational solutions to technology-enhanced learning environments that are adaptive, knowledgeable, cognitively sensitive, pervasive and multi-modal.

Kaleidoscope seeks to explore the different conceptual frameworks of relevant disciplines in order to delineate the commonalities and differences that frame the research objectives in the field. It will do this by supporting a range of integration actions, including Jointly Executed Integrating Projects, European Research Teams, and Special Interest Groups. It will establish a Virtual Doctoral School to act as a common reference point for the development of research and training of new researchers, and a Technological Platform to share and evaluate artefacts.
