2How … comes the idea of Cognolab?Millan Berzosa and Olga Gil were workingtogether for a client in april 2010, BancoSantander Universidades, when they hadthe idea to create an open forum, not onlylinked to academia. The idea was to turn itinto an #open space for knowledge andlearning with relevant people involved. People such as @piscitelli has inspired us. And others such us @MadanRao @LRainiee @stevehargadon or @zephoria are the first ones informed about the initiative. In Spain we count on @alafuente @dreig and @jfreire among others… and growing Non for profit work developed before together with Acens and Fundacion Telefonica made it possible to have funds right from the start. We are very grateful to our first supporters :-)
2What?This is a non profit initiative, hosting four events along the year with top globalespecialists; building and nurturing networks along a focus line: how do we learnin a digital world. Cognolab is an open forum for digital culture, learning andknowledge. It is also a meeting point. We also expect it would be a greatopportunity to build trust and a long collaboration with hosts, attendants,participants, followers, fans, supporters and sponsors. This is an entrepreneurial adventure starting in autumn 2010. This is also a laboratory of knowledge where we reflect on the changes that technology is generating in a world that is already digital.
4How?Sharing knowledge openly, to think andunderstand how we learn in a world that isalready digital. To understand how trends arechanging, and the new way we perceive andsee the world we live in. We are interested inthe general public, teachers, students, experts,companies with the practical purpose ofinnovating and who want to be morecompetent. We want to open up the debate;Make networks and above all, proposesolutions. In 2011 we are focusing on: Transmedia; Mobiles, Games and Learning; Collaborative Networks --informal labs, firms and artisans; and Empowering through 2.0 for enterpreneurship
