ALLS @ ICCE 2019


ALLS participated in the 27th International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE 2019) last December 2-6, 2019, held at the Howard Beach Resort, Kenting, Taiwan. The Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) organizes this annual conference to provide a venue for teachers, students, and researchers to interact and share their research work in computers in education. This year’s conference theme was “Intelligent Computing and Convergent Education”, which highlights the emergence of technological capabilities to support smart education and learning.

Pre-conference events (Early Career Workshop (ECW), Doctoral Student Consortium (DSC), workshops, and tutorials) were conducted on the first two (2) days. The main conference comprised of keynote presentations, parallel paper presentation sessions, and poster presentations began on the third day.



ALLS participated in both the pre-conference and main conference events. The paper presentations are:


  1. The Development of a Teacher’s Guide for English Proficiency Games by Monica Moreno, Dominique Marie Antoinette Manahan, Marika Gianina Fernandez, Jose Isidro Beraquit, Nicole Bugayong & Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigo (workshop)

  2. Development and Testing of a Mobile Game for English Proficiency Among Filipino Learners by Monica Moreno, Dominique Marie Antoinette Manahan, Marika Gianina Fernandez, Michelle Banawan, Jose Isidro Beraquit, Marie Rianne M. Caparros, Philip Caceres, Walfrido David Diy, Lean Rimes Sarcilla, Francesco Amante & Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigo (workshop)
