Welcome to ITHET 2017
We are happy to announce that Karen Bartleson (2017 IEEE President) and Margaretha Eriksson (IEEE R8 Director) are planning to honour the conference.
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 2017 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, our special theme for this year is a fundamental one. We seldom talk about MOOCs any more. They are part of the infrastructure. Even “Blended Learning” is what we all do anyway. What we would like to talk about this year is the fundamental purpose of our educational system. Technology has placed knowledge everywhere. "Just Google it". What we are really on about is what makes capable "can do" graduates for modern society. Not just what they know. This is the challenge of education in the technology fields.
Our special theme for 2017 is how we can utilize IT to help students articulate what they know into what they can do. Please join us.
