We also believe that conversations across these boundaries are critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place. The first three days of the event will have evening (US Time) keynote speakers. The conference will be held in multiple languages and time zones.

Ils ont aujourd'hui 16 ans. L'ensemble de leur scolarité s'est faite dans l'ombre et la lumière du numérique.
A leur naissance, le web est âgé d'à peine 7 ans. 16 ans plus tard, pour ces natifs du numérique, il ne reste plus rien de cette déclaration d'indépendance. Apple, Facebook et Google décident seuls et en fonction de leurs seuls critères ce qui est publiable et ce qui ne l'est pas, invoquant le plus souvent le motif de "nudité" ou de "pornographie", et l'appliquant, par exemple, à la fermeture du compte d'un internbaute ayant osé choisir "l'origine du monde" de Courbet comme photo de profil.
