This workshop, the first of its kind, propose itself as a 'think tank' able to foster a reflection on how the way we learn may be influenced and change because of the development of 'smart cities', but also 'smart villages' and 'smart territories'.
From the Far East, to the Americas and to Europe, cities and their surroundings are evolving towards a new dimension in which the info infrastructure becomes an indispensable asset of our life, contributes to the development of info-ecosystems. Such integrated efforts of info-urbanism are expected to produce social innovation and will make people wonder about new forms of smart education.
The virtual infrastructure - web and mobile - will be integrated more closely with the physical landscape incorporating the latter into a complex ecosystem which will bring forward opportunities to learn from everyday life.
Technologies, increasingly embedded into everyday spaces and artefacts, will make the places not only more sensitive but also responsive and, potentially, coevolutionary (TEP - Technology Enhanced Places).
The human, considered in all her/his complexity, will be placed at the centre of increasingly ubiquitous and complex educational contexts and scenarios. The perimeter of the physical space in which the educational experiences develop will become increasingly undefined and characterized by a high density of social interactions.

Retreat für Innovatoren, Neudenker, Querdenker, für Menschen, die Innovationen in Bildungseinrichtungen umsetzen. Der Workshop richtet sich an Akteure, die in Bildungseinrichtungen gerne eine Veränderung bewirken wollen und Innovationen wie eLearning und neue Lernformen verbreiten wollen oder vielleicht sogar als Change Agent mit dieser Rolle beauftragt sind.
