The 6th International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education
SETE 2021
11 - 12 November, 2021, Zhuhai, China

Call for Papers

Fueled by ICT technologies, e-learning environment in the education sector has become more innovative than ever before. Diversified emerging technologies containing various software and hardware components provide underlying infrastructure to create enormous potential educational applications incorporated by proper learning strategies. Moreover, those prevalent technologies might also lead to changes of educational environment, so as learning performance. Meanwhile, new paradigms are also emerging along with the purpose of bringing these innovations to a certain level where they are widely accepted and sustainable. Therefore, this symposium aims at serving as a meeting point for researchers, educationist, and practitioners to discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress researches, exchange ideas and share experiences about emerging technologies for education. This symposium attempts to provide opportunities for the cross-fertilization of knowledge and ideas from researchers in diverse fields that make up this interdisciplinary research area. We hope that the implications of findings of each work presented in this symposium can be used to improve the development of educational environments. SETE is now opened to the public for organizing a workshop or track to achieve diversity of the symposium.
