Meeting Description:

The International Academic Forum, in conjunction with its global partners, is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom, to be held from April 25-28, 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

Conference Theme: 'The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You'

Technology is all around us. Long gone are the days when we could just walk into a classroom with a handful of papers and a piece of chalk. Even if we are in an environment that is lacking resources, our students with mobile phones, internet café, and social networking, are exposed to technology daily. And new uses of technology are being introduced daily. These new uses show how innovation and creativity go hand-in-hand. We invite language educators, administrators, policy makers, and others to join us at ACTC2013 as we examine technology's impact upon our classrooms, share what innovations we are currently implementing, and look to the future imagining the role technology will play in education.
