Technologies are changing the face of learning, education and society. A surprisingly small number of companies own that world change. So, is the future of learning and education open? Do we foresee a sustainable future learning space available to all? Is learning and education the last digital frontier in a world of disruption and change foreseen by few -- if any? How do we respond, as citizens, learners and custodians of education? How do knowledge institutions collaborate in and with their regions? How do we find meaningful relations with the growing number of great EdTech companies and thinkers? How do we foster entrepreneurship and innovation?
How we learn
The last two decades have changed more in our technological base for learning and education than what happened in the previous two centuries.
How we read
The book will survive. We will continue to learn, to read and to seek out the insights that only encounters with key ideas can give. But what is a book -- these days?
How we change
How can we as smarter universities and societies build sustainable learning for coming generations? Perhaps the key entrepreneurial question of our time.

Themes and Topics
Contemporary Communications Technology (CCT) is networked, digital, diverse, multimodal and expanding. Books are everywhere, in all kinds of formats. There are ten videos and a dozen podcasts for every book one might want to apply in a classroom. Students read and study differently. For the most part, their sense of the English language is very good across the world. They travel more than every and they live in different parts of the world virtually – all the time.
There is in a sense a new reality in education, stemming fro the fact that the revelatory reading of the book, and its ways and means of ordering a dialogue between the author and the reader, has now changed. And yet, one may argue that learning is still hard work – based on gaining insights from exposure to ideas and facts.
On this workshop theme we invite discussions on the fundamentals of learning in an age of media ubiquity.
