My keynote at EDEN, Serendipity 2.0


I just delivered my opening keynote at EDEN conference in Naples, Italy. The title was Serendipity 2.0: Missing Third Places of Learning. I remixed my concept of Homo contextus in it, too. I was very satisfied with the result and I even hit my 30 minute mark with about 40 slides without a problem. Thanks to Sepp, Susan, Robin and Roberto for providing me a third place to reflect on these concepts in Rome.

I constructed my presentation around the ideas of Marshall McLuhan, a visionary observer of new media ahead of his time. I ended my presentation with four questions regarding the title of the conference, technology based on New Learnining 2.0:

  • What does it extend?
  • What does it make obsolete?
  • What is retrieved?
  • What does it reverse into, if it’s over-extended?
  • I will have the recording online as quickly as I get it out of my studio. Until then, here are the slides:

      Nice presentation with a room for vision. Always good for a kick off of a learning2.0 event. Still looking for blogs, wiki’s, bookmarks on this event and so far very quiet in cyberspace. Thanks for putting this online.

      After 2 days at EDEN conference, I’m a little bit disillusioned because it is more about distance education than education 2.0. There was only few very good presentations (like yours), maybe I didn’t understand well the topic of these conference?
