Web address: http://actc.iafor.org/index.html
CONFERENCE THEME: “The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You”
Organized by the International Academic Forum, in partnership with its global affiliates, including The Cultural Studies Association of Australasia, Auburn University College of Arts and Sciences (USA), Birkbeck, University of London (UK), Hong Kong Institute of Education, Hong Kong (HKSAR), University of Lincoln (UK), The National Institute of Education (Singapore), The National University of Tainan (Taiwan), Waseda University (Japan), and Zagreb University (Croatia).
Technology is all around us. Long gone are the days when we could just walk into a classroom with a handful of papers and a piece of chalk. Even if we are in an environment that is lacking resources, our students with mobile phones, internet cafe, and social networking, are exposed to technology daily. And new uses of technology are being introduced daily. These new uses show how innovation and creativity go hand-in-hand. We invite language educators, administrators, policy makers, and others to join us at ACTC2013 as we examine technology’s impact upon our classrooms, share what innovations we are currently implementing, and look to the future imagining the role technology will play in education.
ACTC 2013 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 in 2013!
