The AECT (Association for Educational Communications and Technology)
conference is still looking for volunteers for their October conference.
This is great experience. The conference is in Louisville so its easy to get
to. If you are interested you can find out more information here:
---This year’s convention will be held at the Galt
downtown Louisville right on the Ohio river. The theme of the convention is
“Integrative Approaches: Meeting Challenges.” The notion of integrative
approaches is interpreted broadly to include (a) integration of technologies
into teaching, learning and performance, (b) trans-disciplinary research and
development, (c) multi-cultural and multi-institutional applications, and
(d) projects that cut across disciplines and involve people from different
academic and practical backgrounds. The three keynote
this theme as each one has a multi-disciplinary background and represents
different sectors –* Daphne Rainey*(NSF – computer science and
education), *Peter
Goodyear *(University of Sydney – collaborative learning and educational
research), and *Andrei Podolskij *(Moscow State University – developmental
psychology and instructional design). Several presidential panels and
sessions have already been identified including a panel of researchers and
teachers addressing comprehensive school reform in rural K-8 schools and an
invited session featuring Cloudworks, a social computing application
developed at the Open University of the UK. Louisville is centrally located
and within driving distance for many members; there is also an airport in
Louisville with inexpensive transportation to the hotel. The hotel is
completely renovated and has two towers, one of which is an all-suites
tower. The room rates are less expensive than those at the 2008 meeting, and
they include free Internet access in all rooms.
