MEC (former NBE) is an informal and friendly conference which participants attend to exchange ideas and information dealing with media education, educational use of ICTs and learning environments. MEC is organized by the Centre for Media Pedagogy at the University of Lapland and will take place at the University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland, 27-28 November 2017.

The first international NBE Conference was held in 2005 and the second one, NBE 2007 Conference, The Power of Media in Education in 2007. The third NBE conference was held in connection with the ISATT 2009 Conference. These three conferences were organized at the University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland. The fourth NBE Conference, The Social Media in the Middle of Nowhere, NBE 2011, was organized in Sallatunturi, Salla and the fifth, Media Education in No Man’s Land, in 2013 as well as the sixth, In the Light of the Midnight Sun in 2015 in Pyhätunturi, Finland.

In 2017 the conference returns to Rovaniemi and it is organized right before the FERA Conference on Education, which offers you the excellent opportunity to combine these two events.
