7th March 2007
from 9 a.m to 6.30 p.m.
The most important experts from all over the world discuss on "new millennium learning". Indire, OECD and Ministry of Education promote the convention, aiming at identifying future strategies to build a really innovative "school". Studies and research on learning with digital technologies will be shown.
Three main themes will be dealt:
- FEATURES OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM LEARNERS
Can we label “digital native” the new generation youth? Have the "new millennium learners" new competences or are they just the "cut and paste" generation? Which is the language they use in their everyday life and the one they use at school? Can we talk about “digital disconnect”?
- SCHOOL: FROM CHANGE TO TRANSFORMATION
This area will concern the debate on the changes that ICT have brought into the "school". Innovation in the learning environment, a new space organization, a new didactical organization, new didactical contents, a new role of the teachers. Will all that really transform the school of the next few years?
- ICT & COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
Time for questioning on the impact of ICT on the learning process: do ICT foster a new learning process and do technologies generate knowledge? Can we think about new cognitive strategies or just a more effective way to understand concepts? Can we really talk about a new learning paradigm?
The most important international researchers in the field of ICT and learning will attend the Convention and the Ministry of Education, Giuseppe Fioroni, will be present at the event.
A detailed programme will be provided soon (speakers, titles of speeches, sessions)
The entrance is free and simultaneous translation will be provided.
Travel and accomodation fees will be on charge of the participants.
