Interactive Technology in Education (ITE) –conference is the largest conference in Finland related to information and communication technology in educational use. In Finland the conference is known as ITK.
The ITK conference takes place on 21st – 23rd of April 2010 at Hotel Aulanko, Hämeenlinna, Finland.
Actually calling ITK a conference is a bit misleading. It is a conference, but same time so much more. For three days ITK gathers together in a single conference venue close to 1 500 professionals working in the field of educational research, technology and publishing. The program inclused workshops, meetings of researchers, fair kind of exhibition of educational service providers and gadgets, unconference activities and naturally the main conference program with plenary sessions and 6 to 8 tracks of presentations.
The full conference program is now out.
People from my research group will have give several talks and host several sessions in ITK. Here is the list of events and talks we are involved in:
April 21st: Full day workshop
