PATT INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

PATT (Pupils Attitudes Toward Technology) is an international organization based in the Netherlands that promotes research in technology. They conduct conferences around the globe including those that have been held at the ITEEA Annual Conferences.

THE CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 2020 CONFERENCE IN BALTIMORE, MD ARE OPEN.

Colleagues from all over the world are invited to submit abstracts for presentation at the international PATT sessions at the ITEEA Annual Conference program.

The PATT Sessions at the Baltimore Annual ITEEA Conference specifically aim at presenting and discussing papers: (1) from a variety of countries and (2) with a research character. As such, the PATT sessions function as a research-oriented international strand in the program of the ITEEA Annual Conference. PATT sessions offer USA ITEEA members an opportunity to get an orientation of what goes on in the rest of the world in terms of technology education developments. For international participants, the PATT sessions offer a comfortable combination of an international meeting and the opportunity to see developments in the USA by attending other ITEEA sessions also. Since some years, the PATT sessions also include an international roundtable discussion on current developments in countries represented at the ITEEA conference.

PATT is an international community of technology education colleagues (researchers, teacher educators, teachers, etc.) who are interested in educational research as a support to developments in technology teaching. PATT is open to all. There is no membership. PATT sessions at the ITEEA Annual conference can be attended by all ITEEA conference participants. Registration for PATT includes registration for ITEEA, the International Luncheon and other special advantages.

Proceedings of previous conferences can be found at the ITEEA website.
