MobilityShifts: An International Future of Learning Summit Call for Workshops, Demonstrations, Panel Discussions and Short Talks DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS JULY 1, 2011 11:59pm (EST) digitalculture [at] newschool.edu
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 Cityâ€™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.
