It was announce that this year’s Internet of Education conference will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia and will be organized by Knowledge 4 All Foundation Ltd(K4A) and the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the “Jožef Stefan” Institute, covering countries in South-East Europe (SEE).
They plan to hold such events in different regions in subsequent years from Slovenia and neighboring countries from South-East-Europe such as: Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey, etc in order to provide a catalyst for thinking about these issues and promoting local collaborations in this context.
The goal of this event is to bring together researchers and policy makers from both university and academia to research into methods for improving the effectiveness of video based MOOC education but also promote discussion of the implications of MOOCs and new edutech trends for classical university education, especially in the South-East European region. They are keen to promote discussion and research into what new technology can contribute to effective online learning.
They would like to promote, clarify, identify and define how emerging technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI) and computer human interaction (CHI) tools, machine learning, machine translation, user analytics, automatic assessment, visualization, social collaboration and more can change and help create new trends in education.
More specifically how will these technologies change and influence today’s traditions in Academic publishing, syllabus, validation and certification. The aim is to form a technical and investigative think-tank of participants to debate and discuss these issues which in the future will affect all educational levels. The theme and goals of the Internet of Education 2013 are very well articulated with UNESCO’s vision and actions therefore the conference has been granted UNESCO patronage.
Knowledge 4 All Foundation Ltd (K4A) and the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the “Jožef Stefan” Institute are also the organizers of OCWC 2014 with its main theme “Open Education for a Multicultural World”.
