This conference examines the heart of technology and education about technology. It calls on us as the academic community of this planet to bring examples of heart and purpose to:
The way we educate and promote technology.
Technology's underlying reason for being.
How we are using technologies to improve the society and environment on our tiny home called Earth.
The way technology is used and its impacts are a result of the way it is taught. Its power to create, maintain or destroy is clear, yet how much educating of this heart and soul philosophy do we take responsibility for in our universities and organisations?
This conference calls on those that are taking steps to share, collaborate and learn.
This conference is one where people who are prepared to think and act outside the normal doctrines of first world prevalence can come and safely share their thoughts, work and experiences.
It is being held in Thailand near the Laos border because this region is predominantly Buddhist where the importance of spirituality and connectedness with nature form the foundations of all practices, including those of teaching technology at tertiary level. It is a short distance from Vientiane, the capital of Laos, another peaceful country that has the fame, to the first world's embarrassment and indictment, of being the most bombed country in history—even though it was not at war with anyone.
This conference is a chance to make links with a wonderfully peaceful people from a unique part of the world. It is an opportunity to give and to receive and to share. Our hope is part of your heart will stay here and part of the experience will travel with you always.
Bring your research, your case studies, your desire to learn and share, your humbleness and love and hope of providing a safer cleaner world for our children and future generations.
