A message from: P Clint Rogers (clint.rogers2008@gmail.com) to ITFORUM@listserv.uga.edu

For anyone interested in the use of educational technology in rural and developing areas or simply wants more ideas for how to integrate mobility and situated learning to enhance traditional school paradigms, The International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology (IMPDET) is helping sponsor their second "Forrest Camp" on March 25--30, 2007 (see http://cs.joensuu.fi/forestcamp2/index.html).

I attended and presented at one of their PhD Summer Schools on Educational Technology two years ago and found it one of the most enjoyable conference events I have participated with. It was well structured so that the focus really was on the interactions and synergies between the very international group of participants, papers being presented simply to stimulate those extended discussions.

(This is the second "camp" - to see info on the first Forrest Camp see http://cs.joensuu.fi/forestcamp/index.html )
