Media and Learning 2011

The Media & Learning conference will include:

Plenary Sessions
Plenary sessions with several well-known and provocative speakers on the topic of media and digital literacy, the importance of ensuring the integration of digital and media literacy in formal and informal education and training contexts and the place of media and digital literacy generally in the broader spectrum of skills and competence development. Elaborated profile pages about speakers and their interests are available online before the conference and their presentations will be made available online after the conference. During these sessions, conference participants will be invited to put forward their comments and questions to the speakers via the conference interaction service, Pigeon. These sessions will be recorded and made available online after the conference.
Screening Sessions
Each screening includes a guided tour of a specific production or media-supported service, project or initiative followed by a short question and answer opportunity. The emphasis is on 'show-and-tell' which includes demonstrations of applications in some cases.
Presentation Sessions
Presentation sessions on policy issues related to the use of existing media resources in education and training, on creating media for use in education and training and on successful media literacy schemes aimed at the education and training sectors. Elaborated profile pages about speakers and their interests are available online before the conference and their presentations will be made available online after the conference. During these sessions, conference participants will be invited to put forward their comments and questions to the speakers via the conference interaction service, Pigeon. These sessions will be recorded and made available online after the conference.
Media & Learning Circles
Several topics have been chosen for the conference reflecting some of the issues and challenges faced by those working to promote the effective use of media in learning. Discussion on these topics will begin online on 1 November in public moderated discussion areas linked to the conference website and will continue until 15 December. The face-to-face discussions on these topics provide conference participants with an opportunity to express their opinion and to join the relevant community of interest. Elaborated profile pages about the panelists taking part will be available online before the conference.
Workshop Sessions
Workshops sessions offer an opportunity to go in depth into a particular subject. These sessions will provide practical information where relevant and will include significant audience participation.
