***PATT38 Pupils’ Attitudes Toward Technology — Conference from Finland***
***Technology in our Hands. Creative Pedagogy and Ambitious Teacher Education.***

Welcome to submit abstracts and join the PATT38 Online Conference!

The 38th Pupils’ Attitudes Toward Technology Conference will be hosted by the University of Turku, Finland, from the Rauma Campus of the Department of Teacher Education from 27th to 30th April 2021. As a result of the Covid-19 situation, the conference will be held completely online through a https://zoom.us/join Zoom video communications service!

Therefore, we are launching two additional abstract calls for giving online presentations in the conference.

The first additional abstract call is to give a presentation alongside our full paper presentations. The full paper process is already closed. However, all accepted participants of this call will have an opportunity to write a full journal article after the conference and submit it to one of our theme issues in international journals.
