Conference from Rauma!

PATT38: 27th – 30th April 2021

***PATT38 Pupils’ Attitudes Toward Technology — Conference from Finland***

***Technology in our Hands. Creative Pedagogy and Ambitious Teacher Education.***


Welcome to the 38th Pupils’ Attitudes Toward Technology Conference hosted by the University of Turku. As a result of the Covid-19 situation, the conference will be held completely online via Zoom!

The future oriented conference will be organized by the Department of Teacher Education from Rauma campus. We offer you connections and presentations among scientific PATT-community experts and international colleagues worldwide.

Beside the scientific program you will have an opportunity to see hands-on work in workshops and makerspaces as well as meet student teachers and teacher educators especially in the discipline of Craft, Design and Technology (CDT) Education. See the research themes and recent articles of CDT Education here. The virtual visit to the Rauma training school will be a unique chance to experience Finnish comprehensive education and the training school system.

The theme of the conference “Technology in our hands – Creative pedagogy and ambitious teacher education” highlights the contemporary view of human cognition being ultimately based on
bodily experiences. In technology education, this implies the acknowledgement of the importance of physical objects, experiences and activities in the creation and application of technology. A precondition for high level technology education is ambitious teacher education.

Looking forward to seeing you at PATT38!
