Note from Judges:

We are particularly interested in the use of technology to support active engagement of learners. If your paper concerns a learning object or learning platform you should specify the types of activities developed around this.

We are interested in the innovative use of technology. You may enter a paper about a well–established technology so long as you are using it in an innovative way.
