Opening Plenary

Plenary

Can media really be an agent of change in education and training? This is the question that will underpin the opening plenary session of Media & Learning 2012. Presenters will put forward a combination of fact and opinion aimed at highlighting the changing face of education and training today as it adjusts to meet the increasingly complex world in which we live.

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.

Plenary Session

Plenary

There is nothing like a good conversation to get the ideas flowing. This year we have asked two of our key-note speakers - Andrew Keen and Pedro De Bruyckere - to join Conor Galvin, UCD, Ireland for a session to offer some discussion points as a focus for the rest of the event. The format of this session will be different and a little innovative. There will be opportunities to engage with other conference participants and with the presenters as - collectively - we work our way through a series of short challenges and tasks that surface some key issues of concern to those of us at Media & Learning.
