The notion of space regains fresh momentum every time anew we interact with the world around us. As mobile devices weave into the fabric of everyday life, one is no longer confined to a specific location, time and place in accessing and interacting with communication technologies. Thereby the interfaces become more adaptable and fluid according to the user’s needs for switching seamlessly between augmented, real and virtual information and communication techniques and practices. In educational contexts, however, we are still entangled in the three-dimensional space of Eucledian geometry with which we commonly associate the institutional place of action, yet overlooking at the same the temporal dimension in it. Fragmentation, acceleration, accumulation, synchronicity, ubiquity of information storable and retrievable at different locations at the same time finds its equivalent in mobile and flexible living-, learning- and working arrangements.
The conference topics of investigation delves into these temporal intertwined modes of action between individuals, groups and institutions so as to uncover hitherto unexplored and unarticulated concepts and experiences which would help us to co-develop the creative spaces of the future.
