The International Council for Educational Media (ICEM) will hold its 64th annual international conference September 30 to October 2 in Medellin this year – with all presentations in English (although simultaneous translations to Spanish also will be available).

ICEM brings together educators, researchers and entrepreneurs to evaluate emerging technologies that enable “anytime, anywhere” education, according to the organizers.

According to the organization, ICEM’s “fundamental objective” is to show that “from anywhere, regardless of barriers of time or space, you can learn and provide knowledge. ICEM 2015 will be a great platform, which will be at the forefront with the most relevant technologies and strategies in education worldwide.”

Among the 2015 keynote speakers: Google chief education “evangelist” Jaime Casap; Apple Inc. learning director William Rankin;  UNESCO education policy officer Mark West; and former National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) researcher Tony Leavitt.

ICEM expects delegates from 30 countries for this year’s conference, the first-ever in Medellin --and co-hosted by the local CEIPA Business School. Medellin's Plaza Mayor is the main event site.
