- To create a collaborative environment of discussion and analysis involving keynote speakers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – MIT, the Oxford Internet Institute, and the Berkmam Klein Center -Harvard University-, along with early-career scholars and students. This will be an opportunity for learning about novel research methodologies and scientific perspectives enabling capacity-building and knowledge transfer in areas of common interest.
- To present and exchange national and international research-based case studies in the five academic areas of the Winter school: Social uses of ICT and Digital Culture; Resources and Platforms; New Ways of Knowing, Learning, Teaching and Evaluate; Extended learning achievements and Educators in the Digital Age.
- To create a long-term international academic network of excellence in education and technology (EdTech) based on multidisciplinary studies with different methodological perspectives. The academic network aims to enable international capacity building in the fields of EdTech, innovation and inclusion. This community will be also of great value for promoting and implementing international research projects, seminars and initiatives in the field.
