Conference Vision

scopeThe ever-changing media- and technology landscapes create opportunities for learning at all stages in life in formal and informal settings.

Educators often take digital and media skills for granted and may overlook the diversity of learners’ profiles and educational settings.

How do teachers and learners deal with diversity in media and technology enhanced learning environments? How can such diversity be accounted for and used to transform and adapt online learning settings? How well do stakeholders and policy makers understand digital inequalities? What are the new challenges for teachers and educators in the new media landscapes to create meaningful contexts for learning?

How do we bring together the strengths of the past with the challenges of the present and opportunities for the future? Finding and applying the right mix of information, knowledge and creativity is of primary importance for the educational experience.

Socio-economic-cultural aspects are more and more in focus of development for building the digital economy, including the fields of knowledge and learning. the 2017 EDEN conference keywords embrace also diversity and social inclusion through inter-cultural dialogue, the problems and educational aspects of the migrants’ integration in pan-European dimension.

EDEN 2017 will be the forum offering unique chance to find novel answers, work together for these goals, and to gain deep insight into the core questions of diversity in education.

Special offer: Discounted travel with Lufthansa Group Partner Airlines

Programme after the Conference: Midsummer day

If you plan to stay a little longer after the conference – until 24 June – you will be able to witness one of Sweden’s most important days: Midsummer, which rivals Christmas with its festive spirit and traditions. In Jönköping, there will be celebrations in the park on Midsummer day.

People often begin the day by picking flowers and making wreaths to place on the maypole, which is a key component in the celebrations.The maypole is raised in an open spot and traditional ring-dances ensue, to the delight of the children and some of the adults..

Did you know?

jonkopingOn 18 May 1284 Jönköping became the first City in Sweden to be granted its rights by king Magnus Ladulås, who ruled mostly from Vättern’s largest island Visingsö.

The first part of the city’s name, “Jön”, is derived from the name of a creek, “Junebäcken”, in Talavid, in what is now the western part of the city. This was the location of the first known settlement in the area. The second part of the name “köping”, is an old word for a trading centre or market place.

Conference Venue: Jönköping

The conference is organised by EDEN in co-operation with the Jönköping University.
