Today, we hardly spend any time at all phoning on our mobile “phones.” Our portable devices have become internet terminals without our hardly noticing it. Soon, they will metamorphose again – and become our personal antennae, sensing devices to feed us very contextually sensitive information based on who, where, what, and how we are at any moment. Ray Gallon prepared this look at the near future for the TC Europe 2016 conference in Porto.
We have provided external assessment to the Cita- Project (EU 2014-1-ES01-KA200-003382, funded by the “Erasmus+”), built because “It is especially important at this moment for local associations to develop and modernize our organisations through international cooperation, sharing common interests, experiences and ways to make the most of our scarce resources.” Neus Lorenzo is an official certified assessor for the European “Erasmus+” programme and provides training and advice to different European projects, for networking and organisational improvement: Lithuania (LAKMA), APABAL (from Mallorca) and IATEFL-H (Hungary).
The Transformation Society collaborated with Friends of Education in Macedonia, to help teachers reflect on their own practices (Neus Lorenzo) and think about future technological challenges (Ray Gallon). The 2016 EduConference focused on building an international space for sharing ideas and experiences on effective use of IT in Education, with experts from a wide range of fields.
In Barcelona, The Transformation Society helped organise the second annual face-to-face #Xatac5 Conference. “Xatac5” is the first weekly moderated education chat in Spain where Catalan teachers debate education, language and technology.
