Keynote Title: “Smart Technologies and Big Data”

Abstract: Smart cities are enabler of the smart technologies to improve outcomes across every aspect of city operation to give feasible service to residents. Making cities smart can be enabled by using full potential of technology and innovation ecosystems in cities. Implementation of IoT (internet of things) devices, sensors and other methods and approaches to get data from the city operations trigger operational data size and increases the big data. To give real time decisions for the city operations, smart applications and data enabled capabilities must be supported with big data sets. In this study, smart technologies and big data interaction was analyzed to improve city operations for providing more benefits and opportunities for city residents.

Bio: Adem Karahoca is currently a full-time professor in the Department of Computer Eng. And dean of Engineering and Architecture Faculty, Nisantasi University, Istanbul, Turkey. He received his B.Sc. degree in Mathematical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University, M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Software Engineering from Istanbul University. He has published 20 IT related books in Turkish and edited 4 IT related books in English. His research interests are data mining, fuzzy systems, information systems, business intelligence, computers in education, human computer interaction and big data. His research papers have published in Expert Systems with Applications, Applied Soft Computing, Soft Computing, Neural Computing and Applications, Journal of Biomedical Informatics etc.

Keynote Title: Teachers’ Opinions On WEB 2.0 Tools and Use in Mathematics Teaching During the Pandemic Period

Abstract: An important feature of successful math teachers is that they can provide a variety of activities that support students’ learning and assessment. Web 2.0 applications are known to provide a variety of tools to help produce creative activities. A Web 2.0 tool enables the student to enter data and create multimedia products using text, graphics, sound and video. The possibilities for creativity and variety are unlimited. As a standard, students are expected to demonstrate reasoning and intuition and understanding when solving math exercises. The aim of this study is to examine teachers’ opinions about WEB 2.0 tools and use in mathematics teaching in distance education during the pandemic period. As a research method, interview technique, one of the qualitative research methods, was used in this research. The working group of the research consists of 12 clasroom teachers working in primary schools. Suggestions were given as a result of the findings of the research in which the semi-structured interview form was used to collect the data.

Bio: He was born in Nicosia in 1972. After completing his primary education, he completed his high school at Nicosia Turkish Lycee in the year of 1990. In the same year, he started to Hacettepe University at Ankara for BA and graduated in 1994. He completed his MA (1996) and Ph.D. (2003) at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Applied Mathematics and Computer Sciences Department of Eastern Mediterranean University. He gave his Ph.D. Thesis about “Cycle Decompositions and Labeling of Graphs” in 2003. Between the years 1994 and 2003, he worked as full time instructor in the same university. Between the years in 2010-2014 he worked as a project advisor and project assistant at Yeniyüzyıl Kindergarten,  Karaoğlanoğlu Primary School, Gönyeli Primary School, Çamlıbel Primary School, Şehit Hüseyin Ruso Secondary School, Yeşilyurt Primary School in Northern Cyprus and Kurtuluş Lycee and under the grant program supported by the European Union and also gave these school teachers Smart Board lessons. He gives in-service training courses (statistical software SPSS, further evaluation and assessment, and office programs) to the teachers these working in schools affiliated to the Ministry of Education.

Keynote Title: Teaching Environmental Education Through Technology

Abstracts: It is very important to share information about the environment, to create awareness and to ensure its sustainability, to connect with and touch people. People need to know that the environment must be protected in order to survive. Addressing environmental problems and eliminating these problems can only be possible if people have environmental awareness. Various media tools and technologies can be used to spread environmental awareness among people.  Everybody knows that social media raise awareness of the public by examining environmental problems. For this reason, it can be said that the easiest way to share information about the environment is social media. Increasing environmental knowledge and awareness with technologies that can be used alongside the media has become one of the important issues of today’s world. Despite different opinions, the Covid-19 pandemic has shown that digital learning has become a part of our lives and will be used more often in the future.  In this presentation; methods that will facilitate the learning of environmental issues with the help of technology  will be mentioned and examples will be given.

Bio:Nazım Kaşot studied biology at the Ege University between the years 2003 and 2007. His graduation project was about the biology of stripe necked terrapin (Mauremys rivulata). He was ranked third in the class and the fourth of section Nazım Kaşot, Kıbrıs Adası’nda Dağılış Gösteren Çizgili Kaplumbağa’nın (Mauremys rivulata) Ekolojisi ve Biyolojisi Hakkında Bir Ön Çalışma with 85/100 points. He has the master degree on Secondary Education Field Teaching at Atatürk Teacher Training Academy between the years 2010 and 2011 and then worked as a biology and science teacher at the Bekirpaşa High School, Mehmetçik Secondary School, Mağusa Vocational High School, Haspolat Vocational High School and Gazi Mağusa Türk Maarif College. He had many experiences in the field of secondary education and combined his experiences to improve the environmental education in secondary schools. He was graduated from the master program on environmental education at the Near East University in 2012. He was also graduated from his PhD program on the same area in 2016 at the same university. He is now working for University of the Mediterranean Karpasia as an associate professor. He is conducting researches especially on environmental educatiton and biodiversity issues. He has lots of academic papers and books in the field of environmental education and biodiversity.
