New media for Education?

Thursday, 4 October, 2012 - 14:15

Come and see how Media can be an agent of change in education and training.

Pedro De Bruyckere argues that young people tend to dislike the fact that elements of their informal lives are being used for educational purposes. Edith Ackermann believes that when it comes to learning and creative uses of technologies, children have more to teach adults than adults to children. Andrew Keen worries about the fate of privacy in a radically transparent network of “frictionless sharing”. What do you think?

Come to Media & Learning 2012 to meet Pedro, Edith and Andrew and a whole set of other practitioners and experts who will be discussing the best way to turn classrooms into creative spaces: strategies to measure media literacy in the context of digital skills, and the impact of video in the learning mix. We will be hearing about schemes to foster social responsibility through media coaching, how 3D can make learning more meaningful, the best way to assess learning impact from a digital game, and a number of other initiatives and developments that are changing the very nature of how education and training is being delivered.

So if you are interested in flipping the classroom, capturing and sharing lectures, transmedia and keeping up-to-date with what's happening in the world of learning, listen carefully: the Media & Learning Conference is happening in Brussels, on 14-15 November. Don't miss it out!
