The 22nd International Congress on the Education of the Deaf (ICED) was held in Athens, Greece during the period of 6-9 July, 2015. The theme was “Educating diverse learners: many ways, one goal”. The organizing committee arranged various types of presentations, including keynote sessions, Socratic dialogues, symposiums, paper presentations, and poster sessions. Topics included cochlear implants, early intervention and parenting, instruction and environment, language and literacy, lifelong learning and quality, social emotion and mental health, teacher education, and technology. Four keynote lectures were summarized in this article to address the following issues. Although the technology for cochlear implants has been developed for more than twenty years, the goal of elevating users’ performance is still waited to be accomplished. The neurologic marks in either imaging or electrophysiological studies evidenced the relationship between neural activities and speech sounds as well as grammar. Deaf people and normal listeners performed differently. It revealed the relationship between reading and speech sounds. The pedagogy of deaf education has been detoured to a single method, i.e. oral-aural. Edmund Burke once said “those who do not know history are destined to repeat it.” We need to bear in mind that deaf education is “many ways, one goal”, rather than “one way, one goal”.
