TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED LEARNING (TEL) INITIATIVE
The ISLS board of directors has decided to support and promote the
exciting new Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Dictionary initiative.
This means that our society agrees to stimulate and invite
contributions to the Dictionary and associated multi-national
Thesaurus. Contributions include commenting on existing definitions and
translations, proposing new terms to define at the intersection of TEL
and the Learning Sciences, proposing new editors of terms and just
generally making suggestions to develop this initiative.
You will find the TEL Dictionary here: http://www.tel-thesaurus.net/
And two forums where you can express your opinions: TEL Dictionary stakeholders forum on TELeurope
and the TEL Dictionary initiative on LinkedIn.
Alternatively, suggestions can be sent to Nicolas.Balacheff@imag.fr.
