Welcome to ITHET 2018

Objectives: The convergence of current technologies provides the infrastructure for transmitting and storing information faster and cheaper. For information to be used in gaining knowledge, however, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed. Such environments, knowledge media, brings together telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences to form meaningful environments that provides for a variety of learner needs. ITHET 2018 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, our special theme for this year is a fundamental one. We have previously had MOOCs as our special theme, but now they are just infrastructure. Even “Blended Learning” is what we all do anyway. In a time of the unprecedented access to knowledge through IT, it is time for us to revisit the fundamental purpose of our educational system. It is certainly not about knowledge anymore. It is what makes capable "can do" graduates for modern society. The challenge of education in the technology fields is how students can articulate what they “know” into what they can “can do”.

Our special theme for 2018 is how we can create “studio” like experiences for students articulate what they know into what they can do. Please join us.

Co-located Events: The workshops IEETel 2018 and PRASAE 2018 will be co-located with this conference. More information will be available at their web sites soon.
