Michele Facci, the Business Development Manager for Erickson Edizioni is a smart guy. One of the co-organisers of Erickson’s recent Schools in the Internet Age conference, the temptation must have been to gather together a whole load of internet enthusiasts, much like many of the other educational technology conferences that take place throughout the year. Certainly, I and my colleague Dennis Pozzer were expecting this, and when on the first day it isn’t quite what we got, we were a bit miffed. But Michele explained that Erickson had wanted to offer a balanced conference looking at all aspects regarding technology in schools, and in the round, that’s just what they delivered.
Lucio Bragagnolo was one of the key speakers at the recent Erickson “Schools in the Digital Era” conference. Introduced by the Eriksson host as a “guru” in the Italian technology world. I have to say after seeing his talk I wholeheartedly agree!
Lucio was one of the penultimate speakers at the conference, which had dealt with several extremely interesting, but fairly heavy themes to do with students and the “dangers” of the Internet. It was in this highly-charged atmosphere, where many of the teachers present were starting to wonder about the risks of using technology with their students, that Lucio gave his talk. And wow, what a talk!
