2013 AECT International Convention
Innovate! Integrate! Communicate!
October 29-November 2, 2013
This year’s convention theme is Innovate! Integrate! Communicate!. Over the last year there has been a renewed interest among the general public in using technology for training and education. Fueled by high profile projects such as the Stanford AI class, MITx, and the Khan Academy, many organizations have been rushing to implement technology enhanced learning and instructional systems. Not surprisingly, just as has happened several times before when the pendulum of popular opinion has swung toward greater use of technology for learning, more than a few of these organizations are rushing to embrace ill-conceived and poorly researched strategies and techniques that have consistently failed in the past. We know better! The membership of AECT is in a unique position to shape the future of learning and instruction. We are a nexus for research and communication about educational technology.

International Council for Educational Media - Call for Papers
The conference theme of "we-Learning : Content, Community and Collaboration” recognises the changes – rapid and pervasive – that will have an impact in society. Education at all levels has an important role to help induct societal changes that will shape the class-room, the local economy and a new generation of global knowledge workers. Knowledge and content is a touch away. The new class-room has boundaries beyond its walls. Learning is everywhere and anywhere. Through networks and the Internet, people and resources are linked together. Learning will be "anywhere, any time on any device with everybody”. There will be a paradigm shift from e-Learning to we-Learning.
