The current issue of FormaMente is published shortly after the GUIDE International Workshop 2008, held in the prestigious headquarters of Università Telematica “Guglielmo Marconi”, from 15 to 16 May.
The theme of the event, closely related to the current debate and celebrations of the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, and typically characterized by telematic pervasiveness, revolved around issues concerning the specificity of digital impact on education: “E-learning and multicultural education: digital divide and digital opportunities”. During the five thematic sessions and the two plenary sessions, about 70 papers were presented by GUIDE Members and other personalities, representing as many universities and researchcentres from all over the world. From our own point of view, the Meeting actually witnessed the growth of our network. Some of the participants, contributing their own activity and research issues, are also featured in the current issue of FormaMente.
