International Conference on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning (ICETM). CONFERENCES. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning Conference. June 4-7, 2021, San Francisco, CA.
The International Association of K-12 Educators (IAK) /ICEDM is convening an Educational Technology and Mobile Learning (ETML) conference from June 4th to 7th, 2021 in San Francisco, California. This will be the International Conference on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning (ICETL) Annual Meeting. AK is a worldwide association of educators who have a strong commitment to education reform. It was established in 2021 by former US Secretary of Education, Rod Paige. Its mission is to strengthen the ties between teachers, parents, and other stakeholders through research, seminars, and events.
The main objectives of IAK are to enhance the effectiveness of learning in various settings and to increase the effectiveness of teaching and assessment processes in K-12 education. This includes creating and producing professional tools such as lesson plans, lesson cards, textbooks, study guides, and mobile apps. The goals are to make using technology more relevant and interesting. Enhancing the career options in this profession are also among the objectives.
One of the main conferences, IAK Future Conferences, is a three-day retreat with the goal of creating a new understanding and appreciation for mobile devices and technology in education. Speakers at this event include Michael Leary, Dean Foster, Rashad Hussain, Wendy Lewis, Amy Waterman, John Ong, Tiffany Wu, Peter Spencer, and Carol Van Clef. Educational technologies, such as mobile devices and laptops, are becoming integral parts of our lives. Hence, the need for this conference is to create awareness about the value of these technologies and to provide ways to enhance their use in classrooms.
Mobile technology has had its share of limitations. In the past, it has often been difficult for teachers to incorporate technology into classrooms since mobile devices were difficult to keep clean, and because students were reluctant to accept the technology. However, with the recent advances in hardware and software, teachers have access to modern technology that allows them to include it easily into their lessons.
Educational professionals will benefit from this conference because they can share information on how to integrate technology into the classroom so that students are more willing to use and interact with it. They can also learn ways in which their school can be more proactive in using technology. Such proactive steps are necessary to ensure that students continue to develop appropriate attitudes toward learning. Thus, an effective and positive career training program should be incorporated into schools.
Educators will also be able to explore the value of their mobile devices in terms of providing various forms of educational content. For example, teachers can explore the role that their mobile devices can play in the development of lessons. They can explore the value that they can gain by offering different forms of media that can be accessed through students’ mobile devices.
It is important to point out that teachers have a lot to gain by exploring the value of their mobile devices. For one, they will be able to improve the way in which they teach and motivate their students. Moreover, by using mobile devices in the process, teachers can also explore new methods in which they can inspire students to become innovative, ambitious, and disciplined. Thus, teachers can use educational technology to create an atmosphere where students are excited about learning. This excitement can then be translated into good grades and good report cards.
Educational professionals are also benefiting from the use of these programs in terms of making the class discussion more meaningful and productive. It has been shown that students tend to engage with the teacher’s ideas more when they have the opportunity to use electronic programs. In addition to that, students tend to remember facts that they have learned from educational programs the longer they are familiar with them. The programs can also help teachers communicate better with their students. For example, they can present facts to students in a new light, and this can stimulate their minds in different ways. This can enable teachers to encourage their students to participate in more in-class discussions, which can ultimately help students learn faster.
The benefits of using educational technology to enhance education have become quite clear. Educational technology has enabled educators to provide a more engaging experience for students. It is also convenient for teachers because they no longer have to purchase multiple resources such as computers, laptops, flashcards, etc.
There are numerous benefits of incorporating technology into teaching. However, it is important for teachers to learn how to best use this technology. They need to know how to incorporate these programs into their teaching methods so that students will be interested in learning the materials. Moreover, teachers must also be careful about the programs or devices that they are using. They should always make sure that the process does not cause students to become frustrated.
