Learning within Digital and Social Media @HICSS-50

Learning within Digital and Social Media
a “mini track” at the
Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, (HICSS-50)
January 4-7, 2017, Hilton Waikoloa Village, Hawaii

We solicit papers on how human learning takes place via interactive and
social processes enabled or supported by digital and social media. We
seek to bridge disciplines and research communities between system and
learning sciences, so within this scope a broad range of research
questions, learning settings, and theoretical and methodological
traditions will be considered. Contributions may include new design
approaches, theoretical perspectives, learning analytic techniques,
policy implications and/or other research results relating to the
relationship between digital and social media and learning. Studies may
be situated in formal or informal learning settings, and we particularly
encourage studies of learning “in the technological wild”.

The shared theme across accepted papers will be on relationships between
human learning activities and the technologies used. Topics of
particular interest include:

* how learning takes place in networks, crowds, teams and communities
that exist on and through the WWW and digital and social media;

* how the affordances of technological systems influence or are
appropriated for learning via social processes, and how design of
affordances can leverage these influences;

* how learning is (or can be designed to be) distributed and coordinated
across multiple digital and social media;

* learning practices at the nexus of distributed work, socializing, and
knowledge sharing;

* learning analytics in digital and social media: how to understand
learning via the traces people leave in social media;

* new trends in learning and digital and social media, including issues
and opportunities relating to information literacy, literacy and new
media, ubiquitous learning, viral learning and entrepreneurial learning;
and

* ethical issues relating to learning online, including issues relating
to data capture, analysis and display, and learning about controversial
subjects or anti­social activities.

HICSS 50 and the “Big Island”

The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, in its 50th
year, is one of the longstanding scientific conferences and is highly
ranked among information systems conferences. Diverse disciplines
unified by a focus on information technologies are woven together in a
matrix structure of tracks and themes. By attending HICSS you are not
only reaching the audience of your track and mini-track; you also have
the opportunity to learn about what is happening in related fields and
meet leaders in those fields. Mini-tracks within the Collaboration
Systems and Technologies and the Digital and Social Media tracks are
particularly relevant.

With five of the world’s seven climate zones, and a mixture of Hawaiian
and immigrant cultures, the “Big Island” of Hawaii offers diverse
outdoor activities, good food, and cultural activities.

information. Papers are due June 15, 2016
