In the Wild – well being, the web and the future of education
September 2007 2.30 – 5.30 (followed by drinks)
Developed in association with Learning and Teaching Scotland and the Centre for Confidence and Well Being Channel 4 is hosting a half day conference In The Wild as a Fringe Event at the Scottish Learning Festival.
Taking as its starting point the alarming findings of this year’s UNICEF report - which identified young people in the UK as the most unhappy in the developed world - this event will also explore the riptide of innovation which is transforming how kids engage with the media and the future of education in a world of flux.
Featuring a mix of presentations, panel discussions and facilitated conversations this event will conclude with an early evening drinks reception.
The event will also provide a first opportunity to hear about the radical new ideas being developed by Channel 4 Education.
Confirmed speakers for the event include
Carol Craig – Chief Executive of The Centre for Confidence and Well Being
Pat Kane – musician and author of The Play Ethic
Ewan McIntosh the UK’s leading education blogger
Matt Locke Commissioning Editor, New Media Channel 4
The event will be chaired by Stuart Cosgrove Channel 4’s Director of Nations and Regions
We hope you can join us for what should be a great event.
