For the fifth year in a row, the conference and fair "New Technologies in Education 2018"  brought together some of the best teachers in the field of using ICT in their classrooms, making this event better year after year.

Over the past years, we had the opportunity to meet over 200 speakers from the Western Balkans, UK and other countries who shared their experiences in the use of educational technologies through lectures, panel discussions and workshops. We firmly believe that this year's program will be the highest quality so far.

Below you can see short description of lectures and biographies of some of our lecturers who had their presentations on the conference.

Alfonso Echazarra is an analyst in the OECD Directorate of Education and Skills where he currently works in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). In 2012 he was awarded "la Caixa" Prize in Social Sciences for his book Crime in the Neighborhoods: Perceptions and Reactions. As an OECD policy analyst he has written, coordinated or collaborated on many reports.


Ten things we have learned from PISA

Every three years, when the PISA results are presented, the general public and the media pay disproportionate attention to their country ranking in reading, mathematics and science performance. However, some important results, with a great potential to inform and transform education systems are frequently overlooked. This presentation will try to fill this gap by focusing on facts that provide valuable information to policy-makers, practitioners and the general public.

Forbidden fruit: Smartphones and medicine

The usage of smart phones is shown in Electro medical devices class, which is studied in the fourth grade of electro engineering schools. Thanks to enormous development of electronics and sensors, smart phones today are used for measuring blood pressure, body temperature, ECG, as an ultrasound or as a thermovision camera. Some of the shown uses are approved by the FDA.
