(Re)thinking Education & technology

June 7, 2011 at 11:25 am Leave a comment

Let me share with you something I’ve recently got involved in and that I think is really cool. I’m participating in the organization of the III European Conference on Information Technology in Education and Society: A Critical Insight (TIES, 2012), to be held in Barcelona, February 1st – 3rd, 2012. I think it will be a great opportunity to reflect together, in a conscientious and critical manner, on the processes related to the use of ICT in education, and what might be its role in the creation of knowledge. I invite you to join us.

All key note speakers are international referents in the field of technology, but I’m specially glad we will be able to count with Punya Mishra, Full Professor of Educational Technology at Michigan State University where he directs the Master of Arts in Educational Technology program. He’s been recently selected by Tech & Learning among the 10 Most Influential People in the field of educational technology. I follow with great interest the developments of the model professor Mishra has developed in collaboration with Dr. M. J. Koehler, the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK). I’m absolutely sure he will make an impact in this European forum for (re)thinking education in the knowledge society. See you in TIES 2012!
