International Conference on Technologies in Education

The International Community of Technologies in Education aims to develop innovative spaces for the creation and exchange of knowledge in a wide range of disciplines related – to a greater or lesser degree – with education, teaching, and technologies within society. The community interacts through in-person conferences held annually in different parts of the world, as well as through a family of indexed and arbitrated journals, and a collection of academic reflection books.

Members of this knowledge community include academics, researchers, professors, educators, teachers, pedagogues, policy makers, university authorities, psychologists, philosophers, public administrators, educational managers and consultants as well as technologists and educational software companies, students and PhD students.

The International Conference on Technologies in Education has become a discussion forum which explores how scientific, technological, political, cultural, economic and social changes increasingly and decisively influence education and learning for both the younger generations and adults with the passage of time. The conference includes prominent speakers, some of the most prestigious thinkers in the world, as well as presentations, workshops and seminars given by professors, researchers and professionals from both the public and private sectors. The official languages are English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
