【摘要】2011计算机支持的协作学习国际会议于20117月在香港举行。此次会议的主题是“计算机支持协作学习的研究与教育政策和实践的链接”, 旨在促进CSCL研究对各级正规和非正规教育领域的政策和实践带来新启示。会议集中了全球学习科学、教育技术与协作学习领域的前沿科学家,是一次有关学习科学的盛会。除了在香港的研讨会,本次会议还增设了在广州、上海和北京的连锁会,因此在大陆也吸引了不少学者参与。作为2011CSCL会议的前奏,主办方在香港举行了一个小型的全球教育政策论坛,20位成员之中,一半是前沿的学习科学研究人员,另一半则是各国际机构的教育政策领军人物,他们就教育的微观与宏观研究,做了别开生面的对话。我们相信,有关学习科学的研究,必将成为教育领域的基础研究。

Abstract: The International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL 2011) was held this year on July 4-8 in Hong Kong. The conference theme was "Connecting Computersupported Collaborative Learning to Policy and Practice". The aim was to examine whether and how CSCL research can bring deep changes to formal and informal educational practices at all levels, and contribute to education improvement at a system level by informing education policy.World renown scientists in the areas of learning, educational technology and collaborative learning gathered together at this conference, making it a highlight global event on the sciences of learning. In addition to this conference in Hong Kong, post-conference events connected to the conference theme were also held in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing, attracting the participation of many scholars from Mainland China. As a prelude to the CSCL conference, a small Global Forum on Learning was also held in Hong Kong. Among the 20 participants in this Global Forum, about half were researchers working at the cutting edge in the sciences of learning, while the other half were leaders of education policy in various international organizations. They engaged in a spectacular dialogue on the micro and macro aspects of education research. We believes that research on the sciences of learning will become basic research in the field of education.
