Last week several IE members visited Alicante for the annual Conference on Learning Objects SPDECE. This year’s edition took place in the University of Alicante and the group presented not only a good number of papers but also a keynote on our current EU projects and carried out several dissemination activities for projects Open Discovery Space and Organic.Lingua.
As usual, we met old friends and collaborators such as Juliá Minguillón from UOC, Manuel Prieto from University of Castilla la Mancha, Manuel Marco and Pedro Pernías from University of Alicante and Juan Ramón Pérez from University of Oviedo, among many others.

As every year by this time, several IE members are strongly involved in the new (9th) edition of SPDECE, a yearly conference aimed at providing an open forum for educators and computer specialists to present and discuss research on the different aspects of Technology-Enhanced Learning. Therefore, SPDECE will cover, but is not limited to: new teaching and learning environments, content standards and metadata, learning objects and learning designs and repositories of learning resources.
SPDECE 2012 emphasizes inter-disciplinarity and multi-disciplinarity, fostering interchange between educational and learning sciences, computing and other disciplines. The event thus welcomes papers using a diversity of kinds of research methods, including but not limited to empirical studies, ICT developments, action research and experimental studies.
This year’s edition will be held in the mediterranean city of Alicante, in the eastern coast of Spain.
