Media and Learning 2013

Media & Learning 2013 will include a demo area open for all participants and operating throughout the 2 day conference. The idea behind this space is to show pre-commercial or non-commercial products or service including games and media-rich teaching resources. All demos will be accompanied by resource information and follow-up information.

iRead+ outputs
In the iMinds-ICON project iRead+, ITEC-KULeuven and MMLAB-Ugent created an 'enrichment pipeline' to provide linguistic annotations and encyclopedic information to textual data. Besides the academic POC, we will show applications for 1) general readers, 2) language learners and 3) students with reading difficulties.

iTEC Widget Store – iTEC – Designing the future classroom
With the iTEC Widget Store you can collect resources and tools from around the Web, create your own, and make and deploy them in a wide range of activities. This allows teachers and educational coordinators to easily capture content and tools from around the web and deliver them as widget web apps; describe why they are useful, and share their collection of resources; search their own and others' collections; deploy their resources in a range of platforms and if they have programming skills, create their own applications for individuals or groups. The store is demonstrated in an integration with Moodle.
