The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) is kindly inviting you to participâté in the forthcoming 6th Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom (ACTC) 2016, which will take place on April 28 – May 1, 2016 in Kobe, Japan at the Art Center Kobe.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in technology in the classroom. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACTC2016 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
The Sixth Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom will again be held alongside The Sixth Asian Conference on Language Learning (ACLL) 2016. Registration for either conference will allow attendees to attend sessions in the other.

IAFOR journals are editorially independent publications associated with IAFOR conferences. A small number of papers from the conference proceedings are selected by the journal editors for inclusion. Articles may also be submitted directly by contacting the appropriate editor. IAFOR’s open access journals conform to the highest academic standards, reflect the interdisciplinary and international nature of our conferences and are organised thematically.
If your abstract is accepted and you have registered for the conference, you are encouraged to submit a full paper for inclusion in the official conference proceedings published on the website.
