International Conference “Internet of Education 2013”
This event is a continuation of the very successful Workshop on Co-creation of emerging trends in Academia held in Ljubljana, Slovenia on November 7th 2012. The event brought together students, researchers and other professionals from diverse technological, social and legal backgrounds to discuss the ways in which new technologies are shaping the future of education.
November 11 – 12, 2013
Best Western Premier Hotel Slon Ljubljana, Slovenia
The main goal of this two day event is to clarify, identify and define how emerging technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI), computer human interaction (CHI) tools (automatic assessment, visualization, user analytics, social collaboration, etc.) and machine translation, video caption systems can change and help create new trends in education. More specifically how will these technologies change and influence today’s traditions in Academic publishing, syllabus, validation and certification. Our aim is to form a technical and investigative think-tank of participants to debate and discuss these issues which in the future will affect all educational levels.
This conference aims to be an annual event, set-up each year in a different region, depending on the emerging technologies in those regions. It aims at bringing together the most interesting players in the field of Computer Science based technologies for Education.
The theme and goals of this conference are very well articulated with UNESCO’s vision and action to support Member States in building inclusive, participatory and robust 21st Century knowledge societies – that is also the reason why the event has been granted the patronage of UNESCO.
Scale of Activity
The event will have regional significance and outreach to participants from Slovenia and neighboring countries from Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe such as: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Romania. The proposed activity would cover geographical regions that need a boost in the usage and understanding of OERs as UNESCO recognized them at the 1st Global OER Forum in 2002 where the term Open Educational Resources (OER) was adopted. Additionally this region is in need of policy changes for a competitive inclusion towards more developed universities.
Who should attend?
We’re expecting people from the educational industry, researchers, open access users and policy makers, especially those who are thinking about the next step in education on a large scale.
