Short description of ITS-Edu-TC

ITS technologies play an important role in our daily life. It is necessary for us to demonstrate ITS to all people from the child to the old and to get everyone educated of ITS technologies.

The TC on ITS Education aims at establishing life-long learning and communicating forums for all ages to nurture, develop and advance ITS education and education technologies by motivating and engaging all ITS practitioners, educators and learners. Get everybody ready and thrive in the ITS world in a new IT era.

The mission of TC on ITS Education is to promote ITS education in all technical areas of IEEE ITS society. We will design curriculums for k-12 students from the multidisciplinary and cross-cutting viewpoint involving Sciences, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, and Management, which will inspire innovation by using intelligent technology, and we call this an iSTREAM program. Then, we provide students at all levels, including pre-college, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate, the opportunity to explore the world of ITS, and supply special techniques and skills training in a practical way including Conceiving, Designing, Implementing, Operating, and Service stages. Furthermore, personalized and adaptive education will be developed for all practitioners of ITS for vocational career education. The TC on ITS Education will promote the application of fragment knowledge, distance and virtual education, recommendation system, auto-knowledge, and other new education technologies. The TC on ITS Education will engage all technical committees in ITS education issues and activities, and organize workshops and special sessions on education bringing academia and industry together to facilitate learning experiences and attract students and workforces to ITS.
