The contemporary world is torn between trust in the power of objects, and the everyday reality in which scrolling a touchscreen gives us a sense of agency. What do we know about the power (or powerlessness) of objects in learning?
We are surrounded by objects meant to teach us, give us opportunities, develop our potential. But are they already so well-designed that we can rest assured about the future? Are good applications enough to convey scientific knowledge to students? Can well-crafted teaching aids suffice to deliver a good lesson? Can an outstanding science class be taught solely on the basis of processes and words?
The conference is organised on 21-22 November 2019 in Warsaw, Poland by the Copernicus Science Centre, New York Hall of Science and the SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw. All interested in participating in the conference as speakers are invited to file abstract submission form by July 10, 2019.
