ICTE Santa Fe 1998

Worldwide Network of Learning:
Opportunities, Challenges, and Contrasts

 

ICTE Santa Fe 1998

From March 8 - 11, 1998, the 15th annual International Conference on Technology and Education will convene in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the Sweeney Convention Center.

ICTE Santa Fe 1998 will be attended by Delegates from over fifty nations. Over one third of the Delegates at the Conference contribute some prepared presentation to the Conference sub-themes (a paper, a poster session, a lab, a workshop, etc.). Presenters will be chosen by a Conference Program Committee from abstracts submitted to the ICTE Program Committee. Conference Proceedings will be published and will be available following the Conference. Proceedings may be ordered by Delegates, and are also available to academic librarians and other institutions.

ICTE Santa Fe 1998 will focus on:

A Worldwide Network of Learning:
Opportunities, Challenges, and Contrasts

Native American and Hispanic peoples contribute significantly to the multi-cultural and multiethnic diversity of New Mexico

The Conference will provide a forum for both educational futurists and pragmatists, and will look at alternative processes, procedures, techniques and tools for creating learning environments appropriate to the twenty-first century. There will be ten sub-themes, each examining a particular aspect of developments and progress. There will also be four plenary session presentations from internationally recognized leaders in the theoretical and practical application of technology in education which will have an interest for the whole Conference. Implementation of technology in the classroom, and a variety of successful and innovative models, will be featured. Low budget technologies for the classroom, human / computer interface issues for education and learning, and the status of virtual universities will be addressed. Special reports to Delegates will focus on Information Technology in education in the Southwestern US, worldwide telecommunications networks for learning and related technologies, and the current status of virtual universities. Pre-Conference sessions will focus on distance learning, the Internet, and related workshops and seminars.

WHO WILL ATTEND AND WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
For the past fifteen years, ICTE has attracted participants from every sector of our worldwide educational community, including teachers, professors, researchers, trainers, administrators, and resource providers (curriculum developers, publishers and suppliers). The sub-themes reflect this diversity of interest and give an opportunity for Delegates to move freely into areas with which they are less familiar if they so wish. The Conference thus provides a unique opportunity to benefit from the professional expertise of its Delegates. It is a time to exchange ideas, to get up-to-date, and to meet colleagues from all over the world.

WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
The program is designed to facilitate a variety of presentational styles and formats. In addition to traditional papers and panels, we encourage proposals for debates, discussions in the round, demonstrations and whatever may contribute to opening new connections and horizons for Delegates.
Scene on the University of New Mexico campus. Located in Albuquerque, about an hour's drive South of Santa Fe, the University is one of the hosting co-sponsors of ICTE Santa Fe 1998.
