Nora Carr writing in the eSchool News in March makes the argument that the success of virtual schools in the US is posing a challenge to policy-makers. In the midst of quite some discussion in the US about virtual schools in general, the first charter school in New Jersey is having a lot of success in enrolling students for its first roll-out in September and has enrolled more than 300 students in its first week. This report by Kirsti Ala-Mutka and published by the Joint Research Centre - Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) last November reviews needs for digital competence, different concepts used to describe and understand it, and related policy approaches and measurements.

Innolukio is a learning platform that aims to increase interactivity, create connections between students, enterprises and universities and to exploit students´ creativity as a national resource. Horn recently writing in eSchool News argues that the extensive news coverage in the USA on the value or otherwise of virtual schooling has failed to address 2 critical strands of discussion at the background to these news stories.

While arguing about the extent to which the school building itself is disappearing, it was generally agreed that society may not yet be ready for the removal of the school building. At the same time the conference will observe and analyse how open innovation can be used to transform today's educational institutions. Social technologies are entering primary, secondary, and higher education, blurring the boundaries between formal and informal learning.
Disruptive innovations have transformed many parts of our society, everything from computing to how we do taxes.
