Eduhub days 2017


FullSizeRenderOn February 9 and 10, USI hosted the 9th edition of the eduhub days, the annual meeting of the Swiss eLearning community.

The focus of this year was on e-Assessment; about 140 participants coming from all Swiss Higher Education Institutions attended the meeting.

On Thursday morning, J√ľrgen Handke¬†(Philipps-Marburg University, Germany) gave his keynote speech about education in the 21st century, while on Friday morning Geoffrey Crisp¬†(University of New South Wales, Australia) talked about assessment, with and without the support of digital technologies.

Media in piazza – Follow up


IMAG3445On September 23th and 24th, the event “Media in piazza. Il bello dei media, senza paura” took place in Lugano at¬†LAC (Lugano Arte e Cultura).¬†More than 15 associations,¬†active in Ticino in the field of media education, contributed¬†to the event, and 25 classes of middle schools and special middle schools participated in it with over 400 students.

eLab was present¬†with the¬†activity ‚ÄúGiornalista web per un ora (Web journalist for one¬†hour)‚ÄĚ, which asked students¬†to use the social media channels of the event to tell what they were learning from it, making them think about how to use social media in an adequate and mindful way.

Results were satisfying: students were enthousiastic, motivated, and committed to contribute to the activity; furthermore, although teenagers have different perceptions of media if compared to adults, they showed to know how to use media with awareness.

The students’ contributions have been published on the social media channels of the event, and can be read
