What can educators in the United States learn from mobile learning projects worldwide?

MOBILITYSHIFTS IS: provocative conversations, original ideas, engaging performances, workshops and art projects about learning with digital media.

Comprised of a conference, exhibition, workshops, project demos and a theater performance, the summit will add an international layer to the existing debate about digital learning. In a high-energy context this summit will bring together media scholars, artists, students, web developers, technologists, teachers, librarians, policy makers, and learning activists. The week-long event will focus on diverse discussions about digital fluencies for a mobile world and explore learning outside the bounds of schools and universities. Learn, discuss, and meet future collaborators.

Drawing on New York City’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. 

MobilityShifts is grouped around the following subthemes:

  • Digital Fluencies for a Mobile World 
  • DIY U: Learning Without a School? 
  • Learning from Digital Learning Projects Worldwide
  • Policy

The summit is part of The New School’s Politics of Digital Culture conference series. MobilityShifts builds on two previous events: The Drumbeat Festival in Barcelona (2010) and Digital Media and Learning 2011 in Los Angeles.
