Comments Off on SIGCAS Symposium on Computing for the Social Good: Educational Practices

SIGCAS is the ACM Special Interest Group that addresses the social and ethical consequences of widespread computer usage. SIGCAS’ main goals are to raise awareness about the impact that technology has on society, and to support and advance the efforts of those who are involved in this important work. SIGCAS collaborates with other ACM bodies that are engaged in related work, such as USACM, SIGITE and SIGCSE.

This year, SGICAS will be running a Pre-Symposium Event at this year’s SIGCSE in Kansas City, Missouri, Wednesday, March 4, 2015, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm Central Standard Time. The title for this year’s event is Computing for the Social Good: Educational Practices (CSG-Ed), an umbrella term meant to incorporate any educational activity, from small to large, that endeavors to convey and reinforce computing’s social relevance and potential for positive societal impact. This SIGCAS sponsored symposium is an opportunity for CSG-Ed practitioners to present their projects/practices. The goal is for current and future CSG-Ed practitioners to share best practices, discover new collaborators, review common pitfalls (and how they can be avoided), and discuss how SIGCAS can support the many varied individual and group CSG-Ed efforts.

CSEDU 2015, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, institutional policies on computer supported education including open and distance education, using computers. In particular, the Web is currently a preferred medium for distance learning and the learning practice in this context is usually referred to as e-learning. CSEDU 2015 is expected to give an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the pedagogical potential of new learning and educational technologies in the academic and corporate world.
