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!

Programming as Creativity

The teaching of programming to young students raises lots of questions and is a topic that divides policy-makers and practitioners alike. On the one hand there is an argument that teaching students to code not only prepares them better for the job market but also allows them to be far more creative – becoming active producers rather than simply passive users. However there is a counter-argument that schools and teachers in particular are not ready for what may be a revolution in terms of basic education.
