Sinossi

The first day of the conference will cover the relevant history and traditions of universities, move through the current state of play, and focus on the emerging landscape of universities, articulating both their changing role in society, the significant challenges these institutions are facing for the future and, more specifically, their role vis a vis the increasing commons of knowledge facilitated by the Internet. This day will provide intellectual scaffolding for the primary ideas and tracks we seek to explore. The opening keynote, focused on "Universities as Knowledge Institutions", will lay the foundation for integrative plenaries on university responsibilities on day 2. The three track sessions, "Digital Natives", "Information Infrastructure", and "Physical/Spatial Infrastructure", will explore the pressing questions universities face in these areas, and provide the basis for working groups on subsequent days.
Monday, June 28th
9:30a.m. Welcome Address
10:00a.m. Kick-off: COMMUNIA and Universities

11:45a.m. High Order Bit: “Arduino, Open Source Hardware and Learning by Doing”
Massimo Banzi, tinker.it, arduino.cc
The Arduino Project: the shared, bottom-up innovation leads to new global hardware standard and to new ways of producing and sharing knowledge. Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino, will briefly present the project.
12:00p.m. Plenary: Digital Natives
The Digital Natives track will introduce the perspective of a generation of students “born digital.” Key questions for this track will include: How have – and will – digital technologies affect learning? What are the implications of these shifts for the understanding of universities and their activities, including teaching and research? How will universities respond to and support new forms of knowledge creation and sharing among young people? What are the implications for curriculum building? What is the future of blended learning in light of Digital Natives' usage patterns? How will universities deal with varied levels of media literacy among students, how can we address new types of participation gaps that emerge in the digital age?
Keynote: John Palfrey, Berkman Center for Internet & Society
Respondent: Marco de Rossi, Oilproject.org
Track Leader: Urs Gasser, Berkman Center for Internet & Society
After brief reflections on the history, John Palfrey's keynote will focus on the characteristics of Digital Natives – how they relate to information, how they communicate with each other, and how they acquire and exchange knowledge – in order to identify the key questions from a university perspective associated with the information and communication habits of young people as we transition into a fully digitally networked environment. Marco De Rossi, who founded as a teenager the educational project http://www.oilproject.org/, will serve as respondent and will provide reflections on Professor Palfrey's keynote.
