Events - Learntec 2007


Prof. Dr. Andreas Schrader and Prof. Dr. Joachim Hasebrook organized a special track on technology trends "Integration von Zukunftstechnologien in die Praxis" at the Learntec'2007 conference in Karlsruhe on February 13th, 2007.

The focus of the section was to explore possible future ways of learning experiences in the age of Ubiquitous Computing. The first part called "Living in the Computer" focussed on smart library concepts. Prof. Schrader presented his concept for the McLuhan Documentation Center as a Hybrary, a hybrid library, with joined search spaces between physical and digital libraries. Horst Hörtner (Director of the Ars Electronica Future Lab in Linz) presented his work on contextualized books. Stefan Beck (ISNM student of generation 2004) presented mobile computer technologies for libraries, which he had developed within his master thesis at the ISNM. Stefan is now with the development team of Bibliotheca, a leading library hardware vendor from Switzerland which is a cooperation partner of the ISNM at the McLuhan Documentation Center.

In the second part, Prof. Hasebrook discussed new concepts for self-learning E-Learning tools in the context of Web 2.0. Katharina Bieler from the Federal Chancellor Willy Brandt Foundation in Berlin presented her vision of invisible exhibitions and smart furnitures for cultural experiences. The foundation will open a new museum in Lübeck, the birth town of Willy-Brandt, where the ISNM is involved in the conceptual planning. Ulrich Schmidts (ISNM student of generation 2002) presented the project "Portnet Navigator", which was develop by the ISNM in cooperation with the Lübeck Harbour organisation. After the presentations, a discussion between the participants and the audience took place at a poster session.
