From the invitation

The opportunity offered by digital media and social networking leads to the development of new organic learning environments. A major challenge is how to turn these environments into instrumental knowledge?

Where do new media take us as educators?
What is for teachers and learners the value of being active in new media?
What is the validity of knowledge in Web 2.0 – how can we measure recognition and achievement?
How do media portray the changing open and distance learning practice?
How can we control the potential of media to ensure that they work for all?
How are media affecting modes of knowledge organisation?
You are invited to submit proposals (full text, no abstract is required) for presentations in parallel sessions, posters, short demonstrations and workshops, that relate to one or more of the conference themes.

To learn more about the scope of the event and consult the themes, please visit the respective conference pages.

The Conference web-site and the Call for Contributions is open.

We invite the European professional community of learning to contribute to the development of future mindsets for media in learning at the EDEN 2010 Annual Conference in Valencia.

Proposals both in English and in Spanish are welcome!
