4th Annual Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom (ACTC) 2014 Osaka

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) in con­junc­tion with its global part­ners is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Asian Con­fer­ence on Tech­nol­ogy in the Class­room (ACTC) 2014, to be held from April 17 – 20 2014, at the Righa Royal Hotel and the adjoin­ing Osaka Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­ter in Osaka, Japan.

    Inno­va­tions in tech­nol­ogy have changed the way that we com­mu­ni­cate through­out all facets of our lives. The abil­ity to inter­act with indi­vid­u­als or groups for any pur­pose, any­time, and any­where sup­ports new ways of engag­ing with oth­ers, pro­vides cre­ative mech­a­nisms for teach­ing and learn­ing, and enhances per­sonal, com­mu­nity, and soci­etal advance­ment. We invite schol­ars, edu­ca­tors, admin­is­tra­tors, pol­icy mak­ers, and oth­ers to join us at ACTC 2014 to explore how tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions facil­i­tate our global con­nect­ed­ness and empower flex­i­ble and dynamic edu­ca­tional expe­ri­ences never before possible.

    ACTC 2014 will attract a diverse group of edu­ca­tional pro­fes­sion­als to share research and prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tions in the uti­liza­tion of advanced infor­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies for teach­ing and learn­ing. Selected pre­sen­ta­tions will share evidence-​based prac­tices and impor­tant lessons learned so that oth­ers may ben­e­fit in their own appli­ca­tion of sim­i­lar approaches. The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum encour­ages open intel­lec­tual exchange for the pur­pose of indi­vid­ual pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment, as well as enhance­ment of our shared dis­ci­plines and edu­ca­tional communities.
