The Third Annual Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom, from April 25-28 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

CONFERENCE THEME: "The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You"

Technology is all around us. Long gone are the days when we could just walk into a classroom with a handful of papers and a piece of chalk. Even if we are in an environment that is lacking resources, our students with mobile phones, internet café, and social networking, are exposed to technology daily. And new uses of technology are being introduced daily. These new uses show how innovation and creativity go hand-in-hand. We invite language educators, administrators, policy makers, and others to join us at ACTC2013 as we examine technology’s impact upon our classrooms, share what innovations we are currently implementing, and look to the future imagining the role technology will play in education.

Special Theme: "The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You"

The conference theme is "The Impact of Innovation: Technology and You" and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to technology in the classroom, including the following streams:
