    Hello everybody,

    I am planning a workshop on 'Educational Technology for Humanities and
    Social Sciences'. Now I am collecting information about whom not to forget
    to invite. I know the field of Educational Technology, but not so much the
    field 'Humanities and Learning Technologies'.
    If anybody can provide information about people, currently running projects,
    or wants to join the organization of this workshop, just write an e-mail.

    Following is a short description, what I had in mind with the workship in
    distinction to other topics:

    Technology and Learning are getting closer. There are a lot of attempts to
    use the Internet as content-delivery medium and to facilitate communication.
    This reflects only one facette of learning and technology. In the
    paradigm-shift to constructivism, learning is seen as an active process of
    making meaning out of the world. New methods and tools help students to
    manipulate, simulate and represent their ideas in a complex way. These tools
    try to foster higher-order thinking and systemic thinking.
    Most of these mind-technologies are used in the Science Education.
    The goal of the workshop is to aquaint attendees with the 'state of the art'
    on 'Learning with Technology in Humanities and Social Science' and bring
    experts in both areas (humanities/social science and Learning technologies)

    best wishes
    Johannes Strobel
