As we are part of the International Alliance to Advance Learning in the Digital Era (IAALDE), every year we select an ambassador paper that will represent our society (SIGEDU) at another conference affiliated with a “sister” society from IAALDE. All BEA workshop attendees can vote for their favorite ambassador paper (either an oral presentation or a poster).

The following paper was voted the ambassador paper at the 17th BEA workshop:
