ITEA Represented at International Conference on Technology Education

We have all heard "Less is More" in our everyday jargon. Recently there was an international conference held on this topic for technology educators.

On November 11-13, 2009, the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan hosted the International Conference on Technology Education in the Asia Pacific Region (ICTE).  Participants attending the conference were from Taiwan, Japan, China/Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa, Germany, and the U.S. The Vice-President of National Taiwan Normal University, the Minister of Education for Taiwan, and the head of the National Science Council in Taiwan (NSC) (which is equivalent of the National Science Foundation in the United States) all provided greetings at the opening of the conference. The NSC funded the conference. There were five keynote speeches given plus numerous special interest presentations given at the conference. The 2011 ICTE will be held in Japan. For more detailed information on the ICTE conference, contact the organizer Dr. Kuang-Chao Yu at  <>.
