Thank you for participating at the 26th Adults Learning Mathematics Conference in Lund, Sweden, July 7-10, 2019
Math in a Digital Age
The National Center for Mathematics Education (NCM) and Swedish Adult Education in Collaboration (ViS) warmly welcomes you to the 26th Adults Learning Mathematics Conference (ALM26).
ALM is an international forum for research into Adults Learning Mathematics at all levels, and the annual conference of ALM offers a unique opportunity to present and discuss new thinking and research in the field of adults learning mathematics. The conference welcomes researchers, teachers and other interested to a supportive and friendly environment with possibilities to develop professional networks in this special interest group.
You can submit your revised abstract for the proceedings no later than September 30, 2019.

Math in a Digital Age
The ALM26 Theme is ‘Math in a Digital Age’ however, ALM welcomes contributions from the broad range of adult mathematics research and practice.
Learning has been influenced by technology at least since the prehistoric time when humans started to create cave paintings to communicate information. What separates digital systems from the previous technologies of writing, painting, photo, film and audio recording is that they are interactive. Learning takes place in a technology-enabled world of internet networks, websites and mobile devices in and out of the classroom. A new era of learning and communicating mathematics is emerging giving rise to questions within the field of adult learning mathematics.
- How do digital technologies influence mathematical learning?
- Do our current mathematical teaching and learning practises benefit from this technology?
- How do digital technologies affect ways of understanding mathematics?
- What significance does new technology have in older learners’ learning process?
The conference particularly welcomes contributions on technology-enhanced learning within adult mathematics education, for example programming, mobile-learning, e-learning, computer-collaborative learning, e-assessment for learning, teaching with digital technologies or math in a digitalised workplace.
