MobilityShifts: An International Future of Learning Summit
The New School in NYC
October 10-16, 2011

The New School presents the second event in its Politics of Digital Culture conference series "MobilityShifts: An International Future of Learning Summit." Comprised of a conference, hands-on workshops, project demonstrations, exhibitions and a theater performance featuring youth and educators from New York City and Chicago, MobilityShifts is a week-long summit in October 2011. MobilityShifts makes unexpected international connections between the theories of Jacques Rancière and Ivan Illich, learning projects outside the bounds of schools and universities, mobile platforms, and the Open Web. Stop, reflect, listen, discuss, and build with artists, media scholars, policy makers, students, technologists, teachers, librarians, legal scholars and learning activists from 21 countries.
