INVITATION

Generation@
Tuesday 4 July 2006, 4-7pm, followed by a drinks reception
Channel 4, 124 Horseferry Road, London SW1P 2TX
Canap├ęs will be served

Futurelab and Policy Unplugged are delighted to invite you to a new kind of debate-style event being hosted by Channel 4 called Generation@. This event will bring together over 120 educators, policy makers, developers, technologists and bloggers into a big conversation about how emerging technologies could lead to new approaches to learning.

Coinciding with the publication of two new reports by Futurelab (which can be found at http://www.futurelab.org.uk/research..._education.htm), Generation@ will provide an opportunity to explore a number of related issues including:

the implications of the extraordinary popularity of social networking websites, what we can learn about how young people conduct themselves in these new digital spaces
the potential application of social and collaborative software to education and learning
the idea of a peer-production approach to learning (as found in the open source software scene) and how this could radically transform educational practice for teachers and learners.
At the event, these issues will be considered through facilitated conversation using open space technology (to find out more about this approach, see www.co-intelligence.org/P-Openspace.html). An online discussion forum will also be available in the run up to the event - go to www.futurelab.org.uk/community to request a username and password (this facility is available whether you are able to make the event or not).

RSVP



Places are strictly limited so register as soon as possible (if you would like to invite a colleague, then please pass this invitation on). We do hope you can join us at this event.

Regards,

Futurelab and Policy Unplugged
