The Proposed Activities of the SLT SIG
This SIG will endeavor to find SLT solutions for the use of technologies and tools linked to educational applications. The technologies include developing SMART generic thinking tools for identifying, planning, organizing, and implementing projects, and evaluating their overall sustainable impact. These applications will be discussed and explored through this SIG using online social networking tools and in face-to-face meetings.
A special emphasis will be given towards prioritizing learning and teaching to become more engaging and sustainable with the help of learning and knowledge technologies. The SIG will seek funding for collaborative research and development work with academic, public, private and international organizations including partners from industry. SLT also intends to publish books and special issues of journals with its members linked to the core theme of SLT as a means of delivering continuing professional development. In addition, the SIG will also organize AACE workshops, seminars, symposia and panel discussions as opportunities arise and based upon the demands and interests of its members and wider community.
