The Googling of school: ICTs and the quality of education

·

Gamers and good lives?

The philosophy of wiki

Information overload, why more knowledge?

·

Ambient intelligence and the Internet of things

·

Though this track seeks to test the new frontiers of ICT ethics, papers representing more conventional topics are also welcomed.
