"Learners and citizens as leaders of educational and social innovation"
This is the goal of the 14th edition of the ePIC conference.
We want to open up technology and put it at the service of educational and social innovation.
We want to think deeply about technology - not just its surface and trends but its newest ideas and applications - and technology to be the key to open up educational and social innovation: open it up to new viewpoints and new paths.
ePIC is a community of innovators, and here is everything we are asking you to help out with, and everyone we feel would be a great asset for this #openEpic community:
