Submitted by Maitree Inprasitha (Conference Chair PME44)
The local organizing committee invites you to attend the 44th annual meeting of the IGPME in Khon Kaen. The conference will be presented jointly by Khon Kaen University, Thailand Society ofMathematics Education and The Educational Foundation for Development of Thinking Skills.
The theme of the conference is “Mathematics Education in the 4th Industrial Revolution: Thinking Skills for the Future” , which is very timely for this era. This is the first time the conference will be hosted in Thailand and CLMV countries, where mathematics education is underrepresented in the community. Thus, this conference will provide chances to facilitate the activities and network associated in mathematics education in the region.
The plenary speakers for PME44 are Roberto Araya (Chile)- non PME speaker, David Wagner (Canada), Michal Tabach (Israel) and Berinderjeet Kaur (Singapore). The Plenary panel discussion will be held on the topic “The 4th Industrial Revolution will transform/ disrupt the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics”. The panel members will be Hamsa Venkatakrishnan (South Africa)(chair), Lew Hee- Chan (South Korea), David Keith Jones (United Kingdom), Anna Baccaglini Frank (Italy) and Oi-Lam NG (Hong Kong).
Full details could be found in the first announcement of the conference available on the conference website pme44.kku.ac.th News and information could be also found on the conference Facebook page PME44. The system for registration and proposal submission opens during November 2019.
Khon Kaen is a province in the Northeast of Thailand. There are many flights to Khon Kaen airport such as from Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang Airport), Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and U-Tapao (Pattaya), taking you around an hour. Khon Kaen University is the first university in the Northeast and geographically located close to the Indochina countries, and is a link for Indochinese knowledge.
