About this book
This post-conference volume contains a selection of the best papers presented at IE 2002, which took place in Vigo, Spain in November, 2002. IE 2002 was a joint conference on Computers & Education for the Spanish speaking community: the RIBIE Latin-American Congress on Informatics & Education (6th edition), the International Symposium on Computers & Education (4th edition), and the International Workshop on Educational Software (7th edition). These events have become a reference for Latin- American research and development groups, institutions and final users. Additionally, this conference hosted the 1st Galecia Workshop, organized by the Group for Advanced Learning Environments using Communication and Information Aids, a European Union MINERVA/SOCRATES thematic network on Computers & Education. This joint conference brought together international groups of researchers and practitioners to share experiences, making it possible to establish international relations to enable future collaborations in future initiatives at all levels. 130 papers were accepted for presentation from more than 300 submitted. Computers and Education. Towards a Lifelong Learning Society includes 23 re-revised papers selected among the presented papers. The selection was made according to the initial ranking provided by the reviewers, and an additional on-conference ranking process provided by session chairs. Invited authors were requested to revise their accepted contributions to IE2002 to include on-conference and post-conference reviewers/session chairs remarks, and to provide an English version of their papers.
