  • What are the advantages of informal learning, supported by social software, for creating innovative ideas?
  • What relevance has involvement in media pedagogy and media education and personal IT-competence for procuring a change in learning culture?
  • What future strategies of information search and information processing are required to keep young people from getting lost in the information overload of the interactive web?
  • What are the features of digital learning assessment and evaluation for webbased learning, in order to keep self-organised learning from becoming unorganised or random?
  • Which basic ethical parameters can be defined in an open, digital space for self-organised learning?

During the conference various practical workshops are offerede and an e-portfolio forum.
