The 10th IGSSCI (International Graduate Students and Scholars’ Conference in Indonesia)

Today we are in the middle of a new media revolution. We are at least witnessing, if not directly experiencing, the shift of all culture to computer-mediated forms of production, distribution, and communication. According to Lev Manovich, the author of The Language of New Media (2002), compared to the previous revolutions, this new one is more profound. The introduction of the printing press in the fifteenth century and photography in the nineteenth century indeed brought revolutionary impacts on the development of modern society and culture. However, these previous revolutions affected only one stage of cultural communication. While the impact of the introduction of the printing press only dealt with the distribution of media, the impact of the introduction of photography dealt with still images only. In contrast, the computer media revolution affects all stages of communication, including acquisition, manipulation, storage, and distribution. It also affects all types of media, i.e., texts, still images, moving images, sound, and spatial constructions (Manovich, 2002). In short, the presence of new media is reshaping our social landscape.

According to Sonia Livingstone, the author of Handbook of New Media (2002), media are always embedded in a social landscape, which precedes, shapes, contextualizes and continues after any specific technological innovation. Therefore it is imperative to put new media into context, to locate them within the social landscape, and to map the changing media environment concerning the human activities which, in turn, structure that environment. It is such a dialectical framework of looking glass that enables us not to be trapped into any deterministic perspectives in discussing the relationship between technology and human beings. 

Departing from such an understanding of new media and how it is reshaping our contemporary world, and how our way of living is, to some extent, prompting the technological innovation, this Conference invited scholars and graduate students who have a concern on this issue to take a part in it. This Conference acted as a forum in which scholars and graduate students from all corners of the world could share their ideas and research findings dealing with this very contemporary and global issue. This big topic can be formulated in the question as follows: How are new media reshaping the whole aspects of life of contemporary societies? What is meant by whole aspects of life may include arts, sports, politics, economy, scientific activities and inquiries, religion, communication, language, culture, etc. Participants may choose any of the aspects in line with his/her research interests.

International Conference on Meaningful Education (ICMEd)

The International Conference on Meaningful Education (ICMEd) 2018 was held on 25–26 October 2018, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, in conjunction with the International Conference on Special and Inclusive Education (ICSIE) 2018. This conference was organised by the Faculty of Education, Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The theme of the conference was “Developing Meaningful Education to Realise Just and Equitable Societies.” Meaningful education has emerged as a "new" paradigm in the educational field that emphasizes the character and personality formation of students. This kind of education is believed as an effective strategy to develop graduates who both master the required knowledge and skills and also have good moral that brings benefit to society and maintain human dignity.
Thus, this conference aimed to bring together academicians, practitioners, and independent researchers around the world from educational fields to share and exchange their knowledge, practices, and research results on areas related to education, particularly meaningful education. They were invited to present abstracts/papers relevant to the theme/subthemes including but not limited to Curriculum and Instruction, Teachers Professional, Development, Educational Leadership and Policy, Innovation in Education, Early Childhood and Primary Education, Guidance and Counseling in School, and Educational Technology. The conference also provided an interdisciplinary forum for participants to present and discuss current innovations, developments, challenges, as well as potential solutions to issues related to the practices of meaningful education at all education level. This conference encouraged the implementation of meaningful education as a part of strategies to improve education quality, equality, and equity. Further, this event provided direction for future research on education, particularly on meaningful education that we believe is important to provide useful information for educational policymakers, system administrators, leaders, and educators. Ultimately, we hope that this conference can contribute to the creation of a better society in general and the development of educational studies and practices in particular.
