Introduction and Theme

The advancement of today’s mathematics, science and technology results in unavoidable global vchallenges for everyone. Students are required to be equipped with the 21 century skills to meet the challenges and play their role as an active citizen in their own country and international citizen in the so called ‘borderless world’. Such skills include critical thinking, creative thinking, communication skill, and collaboration skill. Education system should thrive to assist students to excel in the 21 century skills through the innovation in teaching and learning of mathematics science and technology. The teaching and learning processes should enable students to engage in various subjects and be inspired to further and advance learning in many areas across disciplines.

This issue demands more effort in research and publications especially Designal research in various fields including mathematics, science and technology. Therefore, South East Asia Design Research (SEA-DR) as a forum of communication design Designal research in collaboration with the Department of Magister of Mathematics Education FKIP Syiah Kuala University addressing this issue by organizing the sixth international conference with the major theme “Inspiring students to learn: Fostering Innovative teaching and learning of science, mathematics and technology”.

The Major Theme

Inspiring students to learn: Fostering Innovative teaching and learning of mathematics, science, and technology

The Sub-Theme

  1. Design research on learning media for teaching mathematics, science, and technology
  2. Design research on learning materials for teaching mathematics, science, and technology
  3. Design research on assessment for teaching mathematics, science and technology
