Format & Expectations

Format of the workshop

The first half day of the workshop will consist of oral presentations of selected contributions (including demo).  In the second half of the day thematic working group will be formed and the result of their brainstorming activities will be reported and discused in a final plenary session aimed to elaborate a shared document on future perspectives and objectives.


Expected number of participants

The theme of the workshop is such to potentially attract a quite large number of participants.
To make participation in the workshop beneficial for the attendees we intend to limit the number of accepted contributions to 12 (max 15) and participation to no more than 30-36 people (the authors plus a small number of listeners strongly motivated  to contribute to the discussion -> see workshop format).


Expected audience

The workshop aims to foster dialogue between experts of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and experts in social innovation and systemic design, related to 'smart cities', 'smart villages' and 'smart territories'.
To people traditionally interested in TEL, especially those among technologists, educators, psychologists and sociologists interested in innovative educational visions aimed at improving the experience of the training process in traditional contexts, we have to add, therefore, designers, info-urbanists, policy makers and entrepreneurs involved in the design&development of smart living environments and territories interested in smart education too.
