MobilityShifts: An International Future of Learning Summit
The New School in NYC
October 10-16, 2011
The New School presents the second event in its Politics of Digital
Culture conference series "MobilityShifts: An International Future of
Learning Summit." Comprised of a conference, hands-on workshops, project
demonstrations, exhibitions and a theater performance featuring youth
and educators from New York City and Chicago, MobilityShifts is a
week-long summit in October 2011. MobilityShifts makes unexpected
international connections between the theories of Jacques Rancière and
Ivan Illich, learning projects outside the bounds of schools and
universities, mobile platforms, and the Open Web. Stop, reflect, listen,
discuss, and build with artists, media scholars, policy makers,
students, technologists, teachers, librarians, legal scholars and
learning activists from 21 countries.
To attend MobilityShifts you must register.
The early bird rate ends on September 15th.
