SPUTNIC is a one-year European Commission's Socrates-Accompanying
Measures project which stands for "Seminars Promoting the Use of Technologies
for Networking and International Collaboration". The project aims at raising
awareness about the beneficial impact of the (pedagogically sound) implementation
of new educational technologies that enhance international networking and collaboration
for an institution, its staff and its students.
A SPUTNIC Forum will be organised in conjunction with
Online Educa Berlin. The theme of this forum is 'Promoting Collaboration
Through New Educational Technologies'. It will cover four topics: Virtual
Mobility, Social Software applications, Streaming Video and Video conferencing.
The purpose of the SPUTNIC forum is to draw together check-lists,
tips and useful information which will be included in the interactive SPUTNIC
website and publications made by the SPUTNIC project team, supported under the
European Commission's Socrates Project, organising this event.
