IDC 2014 is proud to announce that the opening keynote for this year’s conference will be Paulo Blikstein from Stanford University.
Paulo Blikstein is an assistant professor at Stanford University Graduate School of Education and (by courtesy) Computer Science Department, where he directs the Transformative Learning Technologies Lab. Blikstein’s academic research focus on how new technologies can deeply transform the learning of science, engineering, and mathematics. He creates and researches cutting-edge educational technologies, such as computer modeling, robotics, and digital fabrication, creating hands-on learning environments in which children learn science and mathematics by building sophisticated projects and devices. He also focuses on the application of data-mining and machine learning for the assessment of hands-on, project-based learning. Blikstein has spearheaded the FabLab@School project, building advanced digital fabrication labs in middle and high-schools in many countries. A recipient of the National Science Foundation Early Career Award, he holds a PhD. from Northwestern University and a MSc. from the MIT Media Lab.
We are pleased to reveal that the closing keynote for the conference will be held by Marilyn Fleer from Monash University.
