Journey of Technology with Education

While PC, tablet, cellphone and TV become a part of our lives in time, also expectations from education changes in time or at least reshape by these expectations. The question “How and most appropriately can we pair up this union for learning?” is the main axis of both studies and practices. In this presentation which involves what has been doing and what to do for understanding to-day and bridging past and future, some examples of studies from Turkey and around the world will be presented and possible research subjects will be implied.


National Academic Journalism, Scientific Indexes and Dergipark Foundation

It is an important problem in scientific studies to reach international standards. In this context, it is critical to develop our national academic standards, especially in the development of the Turkish scientific language. TR-Dizin, Dergipark and ODIS which has been successfully initiated by ULAKBİM in recent years, will be examined by the academicians’ perspectives in this panel. In the context of the general problems of the national academic journalism, it is expected that practical and valuable suggestions, opinions and solutions will be reached through contributions of our participants.

Digital Transformation in Education

The effects of technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, IOT, AR / VR, Robotics, which are brought by the information and communication technologies, the industry 4.0, affect all fields. This effect greatly affects our educational system at all levels, from kindergarten to university education. With the obligation to be ready for these developments, it is vital to create the infrastructures of information and hardware that will keep pace with the information and technology that will bring about rapid developments.

The world has become a digital infrastructure. This situation has lifted physical distances away so that every innovation and development and its effects can be instantly spread to all countries. Societies that are ready for these developments can turn this into an advantage, which can cause these big problems for some societies. In this context, it is necessary to make the necessary preparations and implementations in our education system without delay as the individuals will follow the digital transformation.

In this panel, the digital transformation in education will affect our education system, and what should be done in this process and what kind of role should be undertaken will be discussed and possible solutions will be discussed.
