Changing Practice and Technologies:
Decisions Now for the Future
August 10 - 13, 1997
ICTE is an international conference held in Europe and in North America in alternate years. From August 10 - 13, 1997, the Conference will convene in Oslo, Norway on the campus of the University of Oslo.
ICTE typically is attended by Delegates from over forty nations. Nearly half of the Delegates at the Conference contribute some prepared presentation to the Conference sub-themes (a paper, a poster session, a lab, a workshop, etc.). These presenters are chosen by a Conference Program Committee from abstracts submitted some nine months before the Conference. Conference Proceedings are published and available at the Conference each year. They are mainly pre-ordered by the Delegates and by academic librarians.
ICTE Oslo 1997 will focus on:
Changing Practices and Technologies: Decisions Now for the Future
The Conference will provide a forum for both educational futurists and pragmatists, and will look at alternative processes, procedures, techniques and tools for creating learning environments appropriate to the twenty-first century. There will be ten sub-themes, each examining a particular aspect of developments and progress. There will also be four plenary session presentations from internationally recognized leaders in the theoretical and practical application of technology in education which will have an interest for the whole Conference. Two special reports to Delegates will focus on Information Technology in Norway and SchoolNet, the Canadian-based international telecommunications project. Special pre-Conference sessions will focus on the Internet and related technologies.
WHO WILL ATTEND AND WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
For the past thirteen years, ICTE has attracted participants from every sector of our worldwide educational community, including teachers, professors, researchers, trainers, administrators, and resource providers (curriculum developers, publishers and suppliers). The sub-themes reflect this diversity of interest and give an opportunity for Delegates to move freely into areas with which they are less familiar if they so wish. The Conference thus provides a unique opportunity to benefit from the professional expertise of its Delegates. It is a time to exchange ideas, to get up-to-date, and to meet colleagues from all over the world.
WHERE IS THE SITE?
Oslo -- Norway's capital -- lies centrally locted in the heart of Scandinavia. Bounded by Oslo Fjord and surrounded by forrested hills, Oslo offers striking scenery in a unique setting. The city center is compact and visitor-friendly, with most hotels, museums, and shops located within walking distance. Rich in culture and history, Oslo -- the Viking capital -- offers more than 50 unique museums along with an abundance of galleries. Museums include the Kon-Tiki / Ra Museum; the unique Fram and Viking Ship museums, the Munch Museum, the Norwegian Folk Museum, the National Gallery, and the Vigeland Sculpture Park and Vigeland Museum. From Oslo, visitors can tour ancient Akershus fortress, or take a cruise through picturesque islands on Oslofjord. A train ride from Oslo to Bergen offers stunning scenery, and from Bergen numerous cruises through spectacular Fjords are available.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
The program is designed to facilitate a variety of presentational styles and formats. In addition to traditional papers and panels, we encourage proposals for debates, discussions in the round, demonstrations and whatever may contribute to opening new connections and horizons for Delegates.
