This year's special theme is 'Augmenting the Teaching and Learning Experience in STEAM at all educational levels"

Life has taught us that traditional instruction, under experiential teaching and learning models, is not a sufficient means of learning anymore. Is there a middle ground where the advantages of online learning can be balanced with advantages of emerging and traditional learning spaces? Augmenting the teaching and learning experience can transform the education at all levels in STEAM subjects. The conference will focus on contributions to learning systems that engage students as contributors to learning, thus offering opportunities for educators to advance their medium from passive to immersive enriched experiences. What does this means for curricula, teachers’ training, educational content, educational developmental processes, assessment strategies?

Those attending ICICTE 2021 will leave with an excellent overview of current thinking and practices in applications of technology to education.
