  • Welcome Address
    Pascal Smet, Flemish Minister for Education, Youth, Equal Opportunities and Brussels Affairs, Belgium
  • Speaking on behalf of Commissioner Vassiliou
    Giorgos Zisimos, Member of Cabinet to Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the European Commission in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth
  • Media literacy in education
    Paul Bottelberghs, Ambrosia's Table, Belgium
  • Tech it Easy With Young Learners
    Özge Karaoglu, Terakki Foundation School, and winner of the Creativity and Innovation Award, MEDEA Awards 2009, Turkey
Chairperson: Jan De Craemer, Flemish Ministry of Education and Training, Belgium
  • Cafeteria

Coffee break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments. During Media and Learning we plan to improve on this idea by making sure you also meet new people and will be providing you with a participants list and a code for contacting anyone attending the conference using your mobile phone. This way you can use the coffee break to really expand your network .... and don't worry - we will also be providing coffee, tea and fresh drinks!

Are ownership and regulations surrounding the use of existing media resources strangling creativity within the learning sector?

Join the discussion
Discussion

Laws relating to ownership and access can sometimes be too complicated for the learning professional to grasp and there are many who argue that current IPR regulations are too restrictive. This discussion will highlight current thinking and some of the initiatives aimed at equipping the learning community with the right information to deal with media usage questions as well as the topic of licensing and open access.
