The Ubiquitous Learning Conference examines the ways in which the affordances of new technologies are changing how, where and when learning takes place. It considers, for example, how computing and networking devices might benefit learning not only in the classroom but well beyond the times and places traditionally considered the purview of education.
The Conference welcomes participants from many countries and professional areas, including teachers, administrators, researchers, university faculty, managers and others interested in the possibilities of technology in learning. Each day features plenary presentations and a variety of parallel sessions. Proposals may be submitted for paper sessions, workshops, and pre-formed panels. Presenters may submit their papers for publication in the peer refereed 'Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal.'

The 2012 Ubiquitous Learning Conference will be held in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, one of the primary nodes in the American Midwest's "silicon prairie," a region known for its concentration of high tech companies and institutions. Urbana-Champaign is the home of the University of Illinois, a pioneer in digital technologies and on-line learning. Given Urbana-Champaign's important -- and continuing -- role in digital learning technologies, it is an especially relevant venue for the 2012 Ubiquitous Learning Conference.
