The Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom 2017 (ACTC2017)

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR), in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity and insti­tu­tional part­ners, is proud to announce The Asian Con­fer­ence on Tech­nol­ogy in the Class­room 2017 (ACTC2017).

    This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will act as a cen­tre for aca­d­e­mics, prac­ti­tion­ers and pro­fes­sion­als to dis­cuss new research in Tech­nol­ogy in the Class­room. ACTC2017 will cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for the inter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of higher edu­ca­tion and shar­ing of exper­tise. We invite pro­fes­sion­als from all cor­ners of the world to develop poli­cies, exchange ideas, and pro­mote new part­ner­ships with organ­i­sa­tions and peers.

    The Asian Con­fer­ence on Tech­nol­ogy in the Class­room 2017 (ACTC2017) will be held along­side The Asian Con­fer­ence on Lan­guage Learn­ing (ACLL2017). Reg­is­tra­tion for either of these con­fer­ences will allow par­tic­i­pants to attend ses­sions in the other.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Edu­cat­ing for Change”

    Tech­nol­ogy” and “change” are two of the most com­mon­place words in edu­ca­tion today. For edu­ca­tors, learn­ers, pol­icy mak­ers, and researchers the ques­tions and con­cerns fre­quently revolve around man­ag­ing con­stantly chang­ing tech­nol­ogy, claims for improve­ments that tech­nol­ogy will bring to the class­room and beyond, and changes that learn­ers and teach­ers must accom­mo­date them­selves to. How­ever, “edu­cat­ing for change” is not about any of these con­cerns. “For” forces us to exam­ine the changes we wish to cre­ate first. What are our pur­poses? Why do we value cer­tain changes over oth­ers? And then, how do we apply tech­nol­ogy for the pur­pose of real­is­ing those changes?

    A use­ful lens is to return to under­ly­ing def­i­n­i­tions of learn­ing to help us exam­ine some of the changes that are pos­si­ble in learning.

    Apply­ing tech­nol­ogy to edu­ca­tion and learn­ing can change our behav­ior and the behav­iors of our learn­ers. We have all estab­lished new habits of mind through our inter­ac­tion with technology.

    Tech­nol­ogy can be a pow­er­ful tool to aug­ment learn­ers’ capac­i­ties to con­struct and there­fore change knowl­edge and change themselves.

    Tech­nol­ogy may free us from old frames of ref­er­ence by allow­ing learn­ers and teach­ers to com­mu­ni­cate far­ther and faster and with more peo­ple with more var­ied per­sonal expe­ri­ences than ever before.

    How­ever, tech­nol­ogy will not help us achieve any of those changes with­out choos­ing them first, keep­ing those choices in mind, and then using the exper­tise of oth­ers. When tech­nol­o­gists learn from psy­chol­o­gists, design­ers, soci­ol­o­gists, and econ­o­mists or artists we can best reach our desired goals.

    This con­fer­ence, part of IAFOR’s global con­fer­ence series on edu­ca­tion in its broad­est sense brings together teach­ers, researchers and dis­tin­guished pro­fes­sors from around the world to share their insights. The goal is to broaden aware­ness of dif­fer­ent con­texts in the pur­suit of syn­er­gies and solu­tions. We look for­ward to your active par­tic­i­pa­tion in this vital field of future-​oriented aca­d­e­mic activ­ity of The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum.

    In con­junc­tion with our global part­ners, we look for­ward to extend­ing a warm wel­come to you in 2017.
