ICLS is the official conference of the International Society of the Learning Sciences. The Learning Sciences takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of learning, cognition, and development in real world contexts. Learning scientists believe that any investigation of teaching and learning must consider context, cognition, and learning architecture, which we treat as inextricably intertwined. All who are interested in the study of learning in context and the design of learning environments are invited to participate in ICLS 2006, where the leading researchers in the field will discuss their work. Consistent with the theme, Making a Difference, we welcome proposals that examine the scalability of learning environments and the impact of Learning Sciences on educational policy and learning theory.
