ALL DIGITAL Summit 2020: call for workshops and lightning talks

We are happy to confirm that ALL DIGITAL Summit 2020 will take place on 6-8 October in Berlin. The event is co-hosted by our German members Helliwood, JOBLINGE, and Digital Opportunities Foundation.

The ALL DIGITAL Summit 2020 is supported by the Ministry of the Economy of the Federal Government of Germany, which has the Presidency of the European Union from 1 July to 31 December 2020. The German Government has made digital learning one of the key priorities for education and training during this EU Presidency.

The Summit brings together representatives of networks and organisations working to enhance digital skills of European citizens. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have opted for a hybrid concept: in person and online, to ensure that those who are not able to travel to Berlin can enjoy the event and take a very active part in it.  We expect up to 100 participants in Berlin and invite all others to join online. Registration will be open at the beginning of August.

The theme of the Summit is “Competences for the future”, and keynotes, panels, lightning talks and workshops will be organised around these four topics:

  • The future of digital competence centres and their role in the re-launch of the European economy;
  • The new 2.2 version of the DigComp Framework;
  • A common European digital qualifications classification;
  • Lessons learned in relation to digital education technologies and methodologies during the crisis.

 

You can propose a workshop or a lightning talk on the above topics by filling in the form here by 14 July. The selected applicants will be contacted before the publication of the programme.

If you know already that you cannot come to Berlin, consider the possibility of facilitating a workshop online or giving a lightning talk online; to this end we very much encourage you to think of the most engaging technology and setting you can come up with.

Also, organisations unable to come, but whose members are able to gather in one place with a good connection, will be given visibility during the sessions of the Summit, to encourage an active dialogue between the audience in Berlin and the groups in other locations of Europe.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin and online!
