About the Conference

"New Media for Educational Change: Effect on Learning and Reflection on Practice"

The new digital and web-based technologies, coupled with ubiquitous mobile access, have provided us to whatever information we want, whenever and wherever we want it. In spite of the fact that the world has become increasingly connected and interactive, some scholars contend that new technologies have not brought about transformative changes in the educational arena. Furthermore, the always-on lifestyle has given rise to some concerns over its negative impact on young people’s cognitive development, attention, and learning. 

The HKAECT 2018 International Conference seeks to encourage the sharing of the experience and reflection on the theme of new media for educational change. It encourages scholarly discussion that looks beyond what new media can afford for teaching and learning, and ponder over the actual effects of these media on communication and learning. In particular, we welcome the sharing of good practice and lessons learned of applying new media in a wide range of fields and critical reflection on the concerns and issues associated with emergent technologies.




We will have two rounds of calls for papers. The first round calls for full papers that will be selected for the proceedings published by Springer. If you want your papers to be included in the Springer book, please target at submitting your paper by October 15, 2017.

The proceedings of our HKAECT 2014 international conference has been downloaded more than 13,500 times and become one of top 25% most downloaded eBooks in the relevant SpringerLink eBook Collection in 2016.
