For information to be used in gaining knowledge, however, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed. Such environments, knowledge media, brings together telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences to form meaningful environments that provides for a variety of learner needs. ITHET 2019 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, the next ITHET will have “Studio” based learning as its special theme. We define “Studio” based learning as a progression from “Content” based, and then to “Enquiry” based, and then to “Studio” based learning. In the first, we the teachers choose both the questions and answers that students should know. In the second, we choose the questions and the students find the answers. In the “Studio” approach the students must discover the questions for themselves and also find the answers to those questions. It is hoped that this will enable students to articulate their knowledge and skills into capability. Location ELT events noreply@eltevents.com Australia/Sydney public
