Opening Plenary

Plenary

The opening plenary of the Media & Learning Conference 2011 'Harnessing the power of Media to Support Learning' will include several thought-provoking presentations aimed at promoting debate as to the value and impact of media on the learning process.

  • Re-skilling for the digital era
    Constantijn Van Oranje, Member of Cabinet to Commissioner Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner in charge of the Digital Agenda
  • Media, Brain & Educational practice
    Peter Adriaenssens, Professor Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium
  • The centrality of imaginative technology usage to powered-up learning spaces
    Conor Galvin, University Lecturer and Researcher, School of Education, UCD, Ireland
  • Learning to express, learning to be
    Richard Harper, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research in Cambridge and Co-manager Socio-Digital Systems Group, UK
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!

Come and play
During the coffee breaks and lunches you can also visit the dedicated Play Area in the dining and networking space where you can try out and use different devices and applications in an informal and friendly manner. This Play Area is managed by conference staff and with the input of several teachers. Companies displaying devices and applications in this area include Adobe, Microsoft and Apple. Fancy a try-out of Kinect? Or interested to see how you can use Adobe software on different Tablets and Smartphones? Then come and play!

Re-imagining sacred cows: what are the implications of social networking on media and learning?

Join the discussion

In spite of an ever growing landscape of social media and social networking, the bulk of learning media today is still rooted in ancient traditions. In this session Allen Partridge will incite and facilitate a discussion of roadblocks to the expansion of social networking in the context of media and learning. Are the sacred cows of teaching and learning with media changing? Should they be changing? Together we'll look at the anticipated, the actual and the potential change triggered by social networking / social media in the context of learning.
