In this new edition, for the first time, we want to organise some highly practical 90-minutes-long innovation workshops about the main emerging technologies and methodologies already being used in schools and classrooms.
You will see some differences in the definition of categories compared to the previous editions: instead of categorising communications by referring directly to technology or educational processes, this year the categories directly refer to major emerging techno-educational and digital transformation trends (and point to some related subjects). Though the congress has a clear technological focus, we do not want to talk about technology in isolation, but always want to view it in the context of a project, in the service of an idea or as a tool for improving our students’ learning. And, above all, we want to see and “try out” new digital transformation ideas applied to education.
In this regard, the dimensions or categories are consistent and spring from the latest international trends, the OECD, UNESCO and the Horizon Report and are also the outcome of approaches to educational participation like “Ara és demà”, (Tomorrow is now) “Escola Nova 21” (New School 21) and the conclusions of the last ITworldEdu.
