  • definitions for clarity...
    Learning environments refer to the context in which we learn and teach. This includes place, people, resources.
    Typically include four components:
    an enabling context (physical or online space to bring people together)
    resources (library, internet, people)
    a set of tools (tools to help learners process information, manipulate data, and discuss)
    scaffolds (problem solving supports)
    Hannafin, Land, & Oliver, 1999. from: http://www.edtech.vt.edu/edtech/id/models/environs.html
  • definitions for clarity
    Learning experiences are those events and activities from which we learn and can identify, to a certain extent, what we have learned. They are personal and often shared.
    Teaching experiences are those events and activities which involve teaching to a group or individual and where we can identify, to a certain extent, what was taught. They are personal and sometimes shared.
