At this large-scale event, consisting of 2-day summit and 1-day post-conference workshop, 25+ forward-looking top-level experts will focus mainly on creative design and development of corporate universities, management and leadership skills for a successful mature corporate universities. Furthermore participants will benefit from 3 parallel streams, smaller group discussions and one-of-a-kind digital learning, learning technology & corporate education exhibition.
The paper “Broadcast Yourself! Internet and playful media practices” (2007) presents a work- in-progress research about video self production on the Internet that is part of a broader research project which explores the ways current media practices convey a 'playful' relationship with digital technologies in popular culture.
The increasing relevance of video on the Internet as a cultural phenomenon can be traced through a set of related practices around viewing, searching, producing, mixing, sharing and distributing short video productions - generally of low technical quality through web sites of enormous popularity like YouTube, Revver or Blip TV.
These practices allow us to understand media consumption from a transformative point of view that, allegedly, breaks down the division between production and consumption of cultural products redefining the role of the audience.
The research of Gemma San Cornelio, Ruth Pagès, Elisenda Ardèvol and Antoni Roig, from the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), tries to demonstrate that in many of these self productions, play has a crucial role in shaping the relationship between its producers, their audiovisual products and their expected audiences.
The Viducate Network has launched a new version of its guide to promote video production and media education in Europe.
The document, targeted to teachers and educational professionals, provides an introduction of how to use video production in the classroom. It includes first ideas for different school subjects and an updated background to what production involves and needs.
The report “Data Curation in Arts and Media Research” presents the current state of data curation and data reuse practices within the fields of Comparative Arts, Art History and Media Studies. This study is one of three carried out in the framework of the SURFshare programme to determine what research data should be preserved for the long term and what data should not.
“Data Curation in Arts and Media Research” is based on a survey of the literature and a series of interviews with representatives of three types of interested parties: researchers, institutions involved in managing scholarly data, and scholarly publishing houses.
The study, published in June 2010, shows that in general researchers have a positive attitude towards sharing research data, as the availability of large quantities of data on the Internet clearly offers new scholarly possibilities.
However, the researchers acknowledged that the reuse of data is not yet common. An important obstacle is that it is currently very difficult to discover what datasets other scientists are actually producing. As for releasing data, most researchers state this can only happen after they have been discussed in a published text.
The report ends with a procedure proposal for managing research data, based on a “life cycle” which commences at the point when data is produced as part of a project.
There are still places available for the training week in Berlin that will be taking place from the 21st to the 25th of October, 2013.
The course is based on a combination of video education and social media methods and is a hybrid outcome of these two EU projects: www.web20erc.eu and www.viducate.net. The aim is to explore creative approaches in the online and offline use of video within education.
You can apply at your National EU Agency for funding. The deadline for application is the 30th April 2013.

Ce programme d’Éducation aux médias et à l’information pour les enseignants est une ressource importante pour les États membres dans leur travail continu pour accomplir les objectifs de la Déclaration de Grünwald (1982), la Déclaration d’Alexandrie (2005) et le programme de Paris de l’UNESCO (2007), tous en rapport avec l’EMI. Il innove pour deux raisons. Premièrement, il est tourné vers l’avenir, en s’appuyant sur les tendances actuelles vers la convergence de la radio, la télévision, l’Internet, les journaux, les livres, les archives numériques et les bibliothèques dans une seule plate-forme. De cette façon, et pour la première fois, l’EMI est présentée de façon holistique.
Für Jugendliche bleiben Soziale Netzwerke ein zentraler Aspekt der Internetnutzung. Online-Communities zählen neben Suchmaschinen und Videoportalen zu den drei am häufigsten ausgeübten Anwendungen im Internet und werden von insgesamt 78 Prozent der 12- bis 19-Jährigen zumindest mehrmals pro Woche genutzt. 57 Prozent besuchen die eigenen oder fremden Profile im Netzwerk sogar täglich. Dies belegen die Ergebnisse der JIM-Studie 2012 (Jugend, Information, (Multi-) Media).
Formar para um uso crítico e esclarecido dos meios de comunicação, quer dos tradicionais quer dos que resultam das novas tecnologias, é um imperativo de cidadania que constitui profunda preocupação do Grupo Informal sobre Literacia Mediática - GILM, constituído pelo Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Sociedade da Universidade do Minho, Comissão Nacional da UNESCO, Conselho Nacional de Educação, Entidade Reguladora para a Comunicação Social e Gabinete para os Meios de Comunicação Socia
Trazer para a agenda pública esta dimensão da formação dos cidadãos, promovendo a consequente definição e aplicação de políticas coerentes de literacia e educação para os media é o objetivo partilhado das citadas instituições que, para o efeito, têm vindo desde 2009 a desenvolver um conjunto de atividades destinadas a contribuir de forma substantiva para o aprofundamento de conhecimentos e para o debate sobre as múltiplas questões que integram o grande universo do “pensar e agir digital”.
Este 2.º Congresso Literacia, Media e Cidadania constitui, enquanto evento internacional, um importante desafio.
Serão, seguramente, dois dias substantivos em termos de análise de trabalhos de investigação, de discussão conceptual, de sugestões para a criação e implementação de políticas, para programas de formação e para práticas de intervenção.
