Conference Announcement / Call for papers

The Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom
10 to 12 June 2011
Osaka, Japan

International Conference on Techonlogy and its use
in the Classroom, and in the virtual environments
related to teaching: Conference Theme: Technology
and Education: Finding the Right Tool for the
Right Job

The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 1 May 2011.

Where it once might have been enough to only know
about email and PowerPoint, today's wired
educators must know much more. And with
technological advances occurring at lightening
speed it can be challenging to keep up with our
choices. Thus it is more important than ever to
share with our colleagues as we develop
appropriate techniques for using technology in our
classrooms.

In this age of technological innovation, the ACTC
2011 will reach across academic levels to look at
the role of technology and its impact on the
classroom. It combines the use of new technologies
with some new ideas on these issues. The ACTC 2011
will attract a diverse group of teachers,
researchers, practitioners and scholars who are
engaged in the singular goal of meeting students'
educational needs, as students can learn about
crucial issues and become familiar with web-based
learning and the other information technology
tools. The use of technology in the classroom
represents a significant departure from
traditional teaching methods, conducting research,
assessing student performance and assurance of
learning. Moreover, it creates a user friendly and
economically viable environment conducive to
learning in any corner in the world where access
to technology exists.

We hope you can join us in Osaka!
