ICT – Enhanced Education with Social Impact

GOODTECHS 2020 goes Virtual

Due to the world COVID-19 pandemic, the Organizing Committee of GOODTECHS 2020 decided to host the conference fully online, instead of the traditional face-to-face one in Antwerp. In addition, we have postponed the submission deadline to June 1st, 2020. Further details will be provided as soon as possible. We regret any inconvenience that this decision may cause, but we expect all colleagues to understand that it was not feasible to hold the conference in the usual format.

Information and communication technologies have a powerful influence on all aspects of modern society, from commerce and business to health and entertainment. Obviously, education is not an exception.

Educational research is a diverse field. Many researchers actively pursue the development of information and communications technology to support and enhance the deliverability of educational content to both traditional students attending residential universities as well as remote learners at distant locations.

Technologies such as Virtual and Augmented reality, gamification, intelligent tutoring systems or Learning Analytics are allowing researchers and teachers to increase their social impact by reaching more population and delivering them more personalized learning materials and more engaging experiences. Technologies such as virtual and remote labs are allowing more students to improve their practical skills anytime and anywhere. Also, these online labs allow educational institutions to considerably reducing costs and maintenance by accessing federated labs. On the other hand, universal access to education is becoming easier through the use of MOOCs, OERs and smartphones.

  • Adaptive and personalized learning
  • Chatbots and Virtual assistants
