CONFERENCE AND FAIR ABOUT THE USE OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES IN EDUCATION
The New Technologies in Education conference and fair aim to raise awareness of the significance of using new technologies in education. The event was held at Belexpocentar in Belgrade, Serbia.
"We want to help pre-school institutions, schools, universities and other organisations involved in education to become more innovative, modernise the learning process and exploit all the possibilities provided by new technologies. We also want to help entrepreneurs and companies present their products and services that have the potential to change the education process of future generations. All participants will be able to meet world experts in this area and find inspiration by experimenting with new technologies and speaking with partners and colleagues from the region and the rest of the world.
These important topics will be discussed at a large regional conference in Belgrade, and will be followed by an exhibition programme, during which companies, publishing houses and educational institutions from both Serbia, the region and the UK will present their solutions. New areas of interest will be the use of ICT in pre-school education, ICT and lifelong learning and best practice examples from these areas."
The topics will be presented both in Serbian and English
The event is organised in partnership with the British Embassy in Belgrade, the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit (Serbian Government), the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development, the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications, Center for the Promotion of Science, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, The Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities and other partners.
