IATED


IATED stands for International Academy of Technology, Education and Development, an organism organising different international events to improve education in the field of Technology and Science. I have got two publications from the conferences they organised: One on the self-efficacy beliefs of pre-service teachers in relation to technology integration and one on the effects of  technology training on the attitudes of Turkish EFL teachers

On their website, there is a section called IATED Talks. You can watch some of the plenary sessions from different conferences for free.

Here are some talks that might be inspiring for teachers. Please feel free to add other inspirational talks as a comment. Thank you.
