++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Call for Papers: International Workshop on "Educating The Web-Generation" (EWG'07) at IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT 2007 November 2-5, 2007 - Silicon Valley, USA http://www.effactory.com/Edu4WebGen/ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ Description ++++++++++++ While talking about Web Intelligence we cannot leave those behind using the web and 搃ts intelligence? the Web-Generation. This workshop focuses on the fundamental (computational) education of future generations whose lives will more and more be influenced by an enormous potential for technology and furthermore by a hard competition in a global world. During the next years of not only computing we have to find an answer to the question how to provide our schoolchildren, students, and workforces with the necessary educational opportunities to succeed in a digital economy influenced by a hard competition in a global word. How will they adopt and evaluate new technologies? Knowledge itself is growing tremendously and the web with its informational overflow ?not yet prepared to be a fully interactive, context- and user-sensitive tool supporting people in their daily routines ?has already transformed every aspect of our lives. Is the next generation already able to deal with those technological possibilities? Has it the language and analytical skills to be more than Nintendo-Kids? During the last years, the literacy of 15-year-old students was tested by the PISA-test of the OECD member states and not only the U.S. was shocked at the outcome. Web today ?with Web 2.0 and its technologies ?is a place of knowledge (e.g. Wikipedia) but also of crime in different manners. Web-Education is necessary and on focus of almost every nation. Working on new curricula, innovative teaching concepts, or discovering relevant key competencies were also on the agenda of Bill Gates while claiming the U.S. school systems during a senates debate early this year. This workshop is a plea for offering universal literacy using fundamental domains of computer science. Literacy understood as 刟 person抯 knowledge and culture and the ability in a particular subject or field, such as computer literacy?(Webster抯 1995) helps us to see the importance of language-competence, logic skill and other aspects for educating future knowledge workers and knowledge citizens making most of an intelligent web. Submissions not dealing with e.g. new e-learning innovations but with fundamental approaches and concepts to deliver (web-)skills for (web-)people to take a chance of the growing (web-)intelligence are highly welcome. ++++++++++++++ Workshop Chair ++++++++++++++ Elisabeth Heinemann University of Applied Sciences Worms Department of Informatics Erenburgerstrasse 19 D-67549 Worms Germany Email: heinemann(at)fh-worms(dot)de +++++++++++++++++ Program Committee +++++++++++++++++ Stefano A.
