    Call for Papers

    General information
    ICET is a major international conference organized biannually by KSET (Korean Society of Educational Technology). This conference is a global platform to gather researchers and practitioners involved in the various areas of educational technology in Korea and other countries around the world for collective discussion, sharing, and exchange of ideas.

    The conference theme of 2018 ICET is “The Future of Education Technology: Evolution or Revolution?”. Now more than ever, the field of education technology plays an important role to guide the design of future learning environments. In recent years, the landscape of education, from schools to workplace and lifelong learning, has transformed significantly with the explosive growth of digital technology, marked by the arrival of the fourth industrial revolution that seamlessly integrates bits and atoms. This massive transformation process, however, also brings evitable challenges and tensions in education, which necessitate us to revisit and rethink the fundamental role of schools, teachers, students, and other stakeholders involved. The question “Evolution or Revolution?” is not to seek for a single answer, but to provoke insightful discussions of ways to embrace opportunities of the digital revolution and harmonization through evolutionary transitions.

    We are inviting submissions across the following topics (but not limited to):
    • Designing innovative learning environments
    • Emerging technologies for teaching and learning
    • Learning, media and technology in schools
    • Educational technology in higher education and lifelong learning
    • Technology and informal learning environments
    • Linking theory and practices

    Outline of conference
    Concurrent Paper Sessions
    Papers sessions provide an opportunity for participants to discuss mature work that carries scholarly and practical implications. Proposals should include aims, methodology and findings (or its equivalent). Paper sessions will be allocated with approximately 25 minutes (including 20 minutes for the presentation, followed by 5 minutes for Q & A).

    Poster Sessions
    Poster sessions provide an opportunity for participants to share their research in an interactive setting. This track is suitable for those who want to share their work-in-progress, and interactive media design/development. We strongly encourage graduate students studying educational technology or related academic fields to participate in this track. During the poster session, the presenter(s) is required to be stationed by the poster to answer questions from conference participants for 2 hours in an allocated station and time-slot.
    Workshops provide an opportunity for an extensive discussion between presenter(s) and participants and/or hands-on tutorials on a specific topic. Each workshop will be allocated with approximately 2-4 hours. Pre-conference workshops will be held on May 25, 2018 (Friday), only open to pre-registered participants.

    Other Interactive Events
    In addition to the above regular program, the conference will include other interactive events such as the graduate student consortium, design competition, and practitioner track. Information specific to these events will be announced later.
