CHILD CARE DEADLINE EXTENDED

The AECT Board of Directors has approved a pilot program for offering child care at the 2019 AECT convention in Las Vegas. AECT will share the cost with those members using the service. The parent’s out-of-pocket cost will be $15 an hour per child. A minimum of 12 children will be needed to proceed with this program and contracted services.

Please contact AECT no later than September 6th (email  aect@aect.org or phone 812.335.7675) to let us know of your commitment, number of children and their ages, plus the approximate number of hours and days you will be using the service. AECT will require a deposit to guarantee your space and the balance will be due at convention registration. You will also be required to sign consent forms for the child care/kids camp which will be provided by Corporate Kids Events, Inc. Corporate Kids Events uses only licensed and certified early child care professionals.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS – DEADLINE EXTENDED

Are you exploring the use of virtual reality (VR) to support learning? Consider submitting your manuscript to the International Journal of Smart Technology and Learning . For this special issue we define VR as any technology that provides its users with an interactive computer-generated experience through text, audio, visual, spatial and/or speed messages within a simulated environment that engages its users in multi-sensory interactions and reactions for learning. By this definition, augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), hybrid reality and extended reality (XR) are included. Initial proposal submissions are due by September 15, 2019. Additional submission information and notes for authors can be found at http://bit.ly/2IzoPk6 .
