The TCC voyage continues. Over the past 10 years, much has changed, and
some things have not. Where will we go in the next ten, how will we
employ technology and address change, and most importantly, how will
students benefit from all of this?

Students are increasingly proficient in using online technologies and
will require little further IT training in college. They will demand
greater use of technology in teaching and learning. Educators must
increasingly use technology to gain their attention and accommodate their
learning styles and preferences. (ECAR, Students and Information
Technology, 2005)

Blogs, wikis, taggin', mp3 players, online music, podcasts, AJAX, to name
a few, have evolved considerably in the past year. Companies have
incorporated blog watching into their PR and marketing operations.
Universities are providing open content. Programmers are producing open
source software.

How can educators benefit from these changes? What is the new remix among
students, technology and learning? What do students say?

THEME. TCC 2006 will present papers and presentations that explore this
remix of new information sources and emerging technologies as it
impacts the learner in colleges and universities worldwide.

Topics may include the usees and benefits of information technology for
student learning in areas such as:
* Online, hybrid, or blended learning
* Distance learning and mobile learning
* Student orientation and preparation

* E-portfolios and other online assessment tools
* Emerging technologies for teaching and learning (blogs, wikis,
podcasts, etc)
* Open content and open source
* Multimedia resources and delivery
* Building and sustaining learning communities
* Using technology to enhance communication between faculty and students *
Online student services (tutoring, advising, payments, etc)

America, and Africa.
