Description

The Learning and Technology (L&T) conference is a unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field. Through L&T, established and emerging researchers as well as practitioners, entrepreneurs, and technology developers explore new collaborations, strengthen networks, and compliment their core experience.

The Pervasive nature of smart devices and WEB2.0/3.0 technologies have set the pace for rapid digital transformation of not only how organizations conduct business but also the way citizens live on a daily basis on a society. Furthermore, various governmental organizations are redefining both the scope of services offered and the channels through which such services are delivered. Internet of Things (IoT) has impacted education in a major way as well giving rise to a different playing field. 

The IoT realm transcends the traditional boundaries of academic disciplines giving rise to exciting domain-specific and cross-discipline problems. In addition to optimizing the technologic enablers to IoT, societies also need to address the security, privacy and psychological aspects of the IoT disruption. The fact that IoT has become a part and parcel of daily lives of children during their formative years renders the research both exciting and challenging.

This conference will examine the current practice and potential of IoT and the way it affects the digital transformation, innovation and economic development locally and globally.

  • How the conflating nature of IoT contributes in amalgamating academic, research and business communities and impacts the pedagogy approaches?

  • How are municipalities, universities, educational school boards and local communities working together to launch, grow and ensure incorporation of IoT?

  • What are the security and privacy impacts of IoT in the academic process?

  • What and in which ways are technology platforms and spatial arrangements facilitating the gathering of Educators, Engineers, Programmers, Artists, Architects, Entrepreneurs, Designers to use technology, practice and share expertise for making an idea real across local – global spectrums?

L&T Conference gathers researchers to facilitate knowledge sharing and community building from a diverse group of participants from all over the world.

The conference will feature keynote presentations, workshops, and provocative paper-presentation panels covering the latest in multi-dimensional computing and learning technology.
