Conference Theme

The conference theme for IICTCHawaii2017 is “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, including the University of Hawaii at Manoa, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in 2017.
