UOC, UNESCO & Sclipo “Fight the Digital Divide”

Fighting the Digital Divide through Education

UOC UNESCO Chair in E-Learning 5th International Seminar: Fighting the Digital Divide through Education

Sclipo is proudly providing open attendance to the UOC UNESCO Chair in E-Learning 5th International Seminar on “Fighting the Digital Divide through Education.” The conference began on Wednesday and if your interested there’s still one day left. Just follow the link above to the Live Web Classroom.

I can only help but feel that such a streaming collaboration is perfect for Sclipo, where are goal is no less than to ignite a social learning revolution (power to the people teachers!) As Gandhi said, “Be the change you seek…” so we are putting our bandwith where our mouths are (painful mixed metaphor, sorry) for a very worthy cause.

It’s also fitting that Sclipo can aid the bridging of the digital divide using our Live Web Classroom, a tool designed to make online education rich, interactive and rewarding for teachers and students alike by combining live webcam, documents, video and even an interactive whiteboard. Talkin’ about a revolution!

For those of you keeping score, this is the second major conference Sclipo’s provided digital access to, the second of hopefully many to come. Though between you and I, dear reader, let’s all hope that not many more conference’s on the digital divide will be needed. Let’s hope we can take advantage of the world’s post-Obama optimism to make real progress on this issue.
