International Forum on Education and Technology (FIET 2014)

Donation for Education and Technology Research Fund


For the first International Forum on Education and Technology we have gathered some of the best researchers and experts from all over the world who are committed to studying the impact of technology on Education. For six months these education and technology professionals have been working to create projects for Catalonia aimed at improving education through the use of Technology. These projects can become a reality if we all join together to help raise the necessary resources. Companies, administrations and individual donors can help to advance research in education aimed at achieving more and better results in the field of applied technology.

Research in education must become one of the fundamental axes of research, because only with the best education can we make the best possible societies. We must ensure universal access to technology to achieve that the all citizens become digitally literate to meet the challenges of the XXI century.

Make your contribution. Choose the area where you would like to contribute. Help us to bring these projects to fruition by making your donation and publicising this initiative.

Together we can make it happen. PLEASE HELP US!!
