Opening Plenary

Plenary

What is the best way to equip learners for learning nowadays? What types of services and tools should our learning environments be providing? Dramatic and radical change or gradual systemic adaptation to the needs and requirements so of our modern worlds? What’s it to be? These are just some of the questions that speakers in this opening plenary will address.

  • Lieve Desplenter, Cabinet of the Flemish Minister of Education and Training
  • Ricardo Ferreira, European Commission
  • How Teacher Motivations Shape Digital Learning
    Renee Hobbs, Harrington School of Communication and Media at the University of Rhode Island, USA
  • A Reel Education
    Beeban Kidron, Film Director and Co-founder, FILMCLUB, 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.

E-Safety and Digital Ethics

Go to the curated theme space
Discussion

We live in a world where the exchange of information is brisk, persistent and unyielding. In the US, over 95% of teens aged 12 – 17 are Internet users, with 80% of those youth regularly using social media sites to communicate with the world. In fact, 8,868 tweets per second were sent during the MTV Music Awards in August 2011. Many of these tweets were sent by the 74% of teens who own their own personal computer.
Given the amount of time students are spending online and in digital environments, it is becoming increasingly essential to give them the tools they need to make good decisions. In this panel four people with experience thinking about and teaching digital ethics come together to talk about ways in which we can engage students in meaningful discussions about digital behavior.

Moderator: Donald Heider, Center for Digital Ethics and Policy and Loyola University Chicago, USA

Showing of the Documentary ‘InRealLife’

InRealLife asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children? Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive. Quietly building its case, InRealLife asks if we can afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net?
