In 1971, the Physics Faculty of Iasi, with the aid of the Physics-Chemical Society - the Iasi branch and of the County Inspectorat of Education was organizing the first edition of the Conference "Educational Means of Original Conception", as a continuation of pedagogical training. On this occasion students, teachers and professors used to present original contributions to the development of educational process, mainly regarding the means of education projected and performed during the teaching activity.
Year after year, together with the process of modernizing of the physics education in Romania (the programmed training, the computer-assisted training), the aria of interest of the Conference enlarged, so that physics and chemistry teachers of neighbor counties joined the traditional participants, and the Conference became a regional one. In a few years, due to the quality of the presented papers, and to originality of the answers given to problems arisen during the education process in Physics, the Conference became a manifestation of national interest.
Beginning with the XXV-th edition, the Conference changed its status and became an international meeting, while starting with the XVIII-th edition its title has been changed to "Modern Educational Technologies in Physics". Starting with XXX-th edition was introduced a new Section dedicated to the university students’ work. Beginning with 2007 edition students from middle and high schools was invited to join the conference in a special section.
All these show how the Conference responds to the actual challenges of the modern society, of the Romanian Physics education in particular.
