The biggest 2014 edtech event in Tokyo

Dear readers,

I wanted to inform you that this Saturday will see Tokyo’s biggest edtech event for 2014.


Kanda University of International Studies (KUIS), in conjunction with the Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE), is hosting Paperless: Innovation and technology in education, on February 1st.

Apart from focussing on language learning technology, Paperless is aiming to bring new mediums and perspectives to education, while using technology to enhance the pedagogic practice. This one-day event will feature presentations on not only mobile learning, but also innovative techniques for flipping, enhancing and revolutionising one’s classroom.

When flicking through the PaperlessHandiBook, jammed in amongst some of the leaders in language education using technology such as Rab Patterson and Paul Raine, you’ll find a panel discussion about mobile language learning between regular contributors to DMLL, Dan Ferreira, Travis Cote, Simeon Flowers and myself. If you plan on heading to the event, be sure to track one of us down to discuss all issues DMLL. We would love to share ideas with you.

For those of you who are unable to attend, all talks in the main auditorium at the venue will be streamed live. Also, links to a lot of the presenter’s slides and other information can be found inside this PaperlessHandiBook or on the event’s website.

  1. I neglected to register during pre-registration, and now it is closed. I contacted the organizers to ask if I could still get in. Second-hand info: There are a limited number of places available, so if you haven’t registered, get there early.
