  • 5. 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
  • 6. definitions for clarity
    Learning experiences are those events and activities from which:
    We learn, and
    We 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.
  • 7. start where you are...
    as a learner
  • 8. discussion
    Discuss (First Group):
    Describe a really good learning experience you’ve had recently.  What made it good?  Why?
    Note:
    Responses on stickies (one idea per) and add to wall.
    Move:
    One person stay at the table to host the new group.
    Others please move to a new table.
    Host begins conversation by sharing what previous group discussed, using flipchart notes as illustrations.
  • 9. discussion
    Discuss (Second Group):
    What are the necessary ingredients to support great learning experiences?
    Note:
    Responses on stickies (one idea per) and add to wall.
  • 10. sharing ideas
    Place all stickies on paper wall
    Working together, cluster related ideas
    Develop a name/title/theme for each cluster
  • 11. observations
    What patterns do you notice?
    Are you surprised by anything you see?
    Is there anything missing?
    Something you would like to move or highlight?
    Compare your stickies with those from previous World Cafes. What do you notice?
  • 12. thank you!
