Im Oktober findet in New York die Konferenz „Mobility Shifts“ statt, die sich mit der Zukunft des „digitalen Lernens“ befasst – die bisherige Liste der Vortragenden sieht sehr eindrucksvoll aus und ich freue mich, dass mein Name auch darunter ist.. :-)
Noch bis zum 1.7. können Vorschläge für Workshops, Diskussionsrunden oder Kurzvorträge eingereicht werden. Den vollständigen Call gibt es auf der Webseite der Konferenz.
When: October 10-16, 2011
Where: The New School, New York City
MOBILITYSHIFTS IS: provocative conversations, original ideas, engaging performances, workshops and art projects about digital learning. Where, when, how, and even what we are learning is changing. Digital learning is not only taking place online or in the university classroom but is also situated in museums, after school programs, living rooms, public libraries and peer-to-peer universities. The future of learning will not be solely determined by digital culture but by the re-organization of power relationships and institutional protocols. MobilityShifts will bring together leading scholars, artists, web developers, technologists, teachers, librarians, policy makers, critical legal scholars and learning activists to discuss how digital media can play a positive role in this process of transformation.
Comprised of a conference, exhibition, workshops, project demos and a theater performance, this summit will add an international layer to the existing debate about digital fluencies for a mobile world and learning outside the bounds of traditional institutions of higher education.
Drawing on New York City’s strengths as a global hub for learning, innovation and design, the summit will showcase theories, people and projects making unexpected connections between self-learning, mobile platforms and the Open Web. Learn, discuss, laugh, write mini-manifestos, record videos, conduct interviews and meet future collaborators.
MobilityShifts is now accepting applications in the following formats:
1) Hands-on Workshops and Demonstrations
(They will take place October 10-13.)
Workshops and Demonstrations should provide an opportunity for hands-on exploration. They will be scheduled for two hours and should invite audience participation.
2) Panel Discussions and Short Talks
Panel Discussions should bring together four panelists to include a mix of individuals working in diverse areas of research, theory and practice.
Short Talks of up to ten minutes should focus on presenting work or research on a particular subject relevant to one of the three subthemes of the Summit. [mehr]
