To most people math appears abstract, mysterious. Complicated. Inaccessible. But math is nothing but a different language to express the world. Math can be sensual. Math can be tasted, it smells, it creates sound and color. One can touch it – and be touched by it…
ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN will be screening this striking portrait of science on Friday November 30th at 2.15 pm. Berlin-based director Ekaterina Eremenko will be present to discuss her work after the European premiere. “Colors of Math” / "Sensual Math"/«Чувственная математика»/"Sensuelles Mathématiques"
was participating in the documentary competition of the 34th Moscow International Film Festival and classified among the winners of Audience Awards. It will also participate in the New York Imagine Science Film Festival next week.
"Colors of Math' builds a bridge from the shore of everyday life to the shore of a phantasmic harmony of divine spheres, sometimes unreachable and thus more attractive."…“The film makes math so real that I would recommend to forcefully show it in schools and colleges, not only to students but to teachers, the majority of whom don't remember (even if they knew at some point) what, why, and to whom they are teaching.” (for original qoute in Russian please click here)

ONLINE EDUCA is the best place to feel the heartbeat of technology-enhanced teaching and learning. A lot of new information to analyse, brand new tools and technology, meeting with interesting and exited people – this is an incomplete list of benefits that participants can derive from participation in this outstanding conference. I would like to be a part of ONLINE EDUCA every year!

OEB is the premier international conference to learn about learning and the cutting edge of educational tools and materials available. I could not think of a better place to be.

Besides interesting discussions and many great insights, we also got a ton of important contacts and new leads to potential partners!

For me, it was fascinating to see how many people from across the world are interested in learning about the application of technology to education, but I was also very impressed by the number of people who were challenging the assumption that technology is always good. We have to be very careful that we use technology as a tool, not as an end in itself. That was very good for me to see and very useful for me to hear.
