Mathematics Education in the 4th Industrial Revolution: Thinking Skills for the Future
Submitted by Maitree Inprasitha (Conference Chair PME44)
The Local Organizing Committee invites you to attend the 44th Annual Meeting of the IGPME. This is the first time the conference will be hosted by Thailand and CLMV countries (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam) 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 theme of the conference is “Mathematics Education in the 4th Industrial Revolution: Thinking Skills for the Future”, which is very timely for this era.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be held fully online.
However, we would like to thank you for the support and opportunity given to us twice times to host the virtual
meeting of IGPME which was held on July 21-22, 2020. It is a great pleasure that we had this opportunity to experience the new way of conducting the 2020 virtual meeting of the IGPME effectively. Furthermore, PME 44 in this year in collaboration with the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. It is very challenging to organize the virtual conference.

1.2 Virtual Hosting Organization
