Call for papers
ITU, Oslo university hereby invite you to a two days mini conference/workshop about computer games and learning 21.-22. April. David Shaffer is keynote speaker for the event. The first day will be an open conference, and the second day a workshop on the theme Games and Learning. Based on the workshop we will produce a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Digital Kompetanse/Nordic Journal of Digital Literacy.

The vision of the journal is to establish a new channel for cross-disciplinary scientific work on the broad subject field of digital literacy. Most Nordic countries is integrating an awareness of digital literacy into broader curriculum and policy documents these days, and the journal will fill a gap between the scientific communities as well as contributing to the policy- and curriculum makers´ understanding of the deeper layers in the concept. In short the journal will work as a starting point to coin a new academic discipline in the Nordic region.Nordic Journal of Digital Literacy will mainly post articles in the Scandinavian languages, but also aims to reach an English speaking audience.
