  • First wave in 2 parts: computer labs first, then making computers available in classrooms, for example by having a chariot for 20 laptops that could be brought in. In Jan 2005 OLPC was launched which quite arguably have had kicked off something! Not the one that was indented, but that everyone wanted to make their own low-cost laptop devise.
    Apart from the report by EUN, OECD is making their study on initiatives, a big conference part of NML took place in Feb in Vienna. 2 different challenges: in developing world about 3 Rs: Reading, Writing and Arithmetic and replacing the sometimes incopetent teachers)
  • 7000 pupils with netbooks and about 1200 teachers= more than 8000 netbooks out there!
  • The support of senior management in schools is important, also the involvement of more than 1 teacher. In eT still 1.4 teachers/school, an indicator about the use of new teachnologies in schools. For change to happen, more than an isolated effort is needed. Thus, leadership supporting the initiative and integtating it into their school’s ICT strategies is the key

    • 1. www.europeanschoolnet.org – eminent.eun.org8-10 November 2010 - Copenhagen Welcome UK netbook teachers by the European Schoolnet team
    • 2. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen • 1:1 indicates the ratio of items per user, i.e. one netbook per learner. • 1:1 refers to the current trend of low-cost computer devices, ranging from mobiles and handhelds to laptops or netbooks, have gained ground. • Typically the devise is connected to the internet and owned by the learner. • One-to-one (1:1) computing is a new phenomena in educational settings! What is 1:1 computing in education?
    • 3. • 33 initiatives identified in 18 countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and UK) • Two waves of expansion: – 2003-2004: spreading out hardware in schools – 2007-2008: more individualised approach • Report downloadable at: http://bit.ly/9lE0Pb • OEDC NML on 1:1 http://www.bildung.at/nml-conference2010/ New European review of initiatives
    • 4. • How can 1:1 computing in education change and improve teaching and learning both inside and outside of schools? Why the Acer-EUN pilot?
    • 5. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Various educational contexts: ε Place: in school vs. out of school use ε Context: individual vs. collaborative use ε Purpose: educational vs. leisure use Why Acer-EUN netbook pilot? (by Heeok Heo and Jeonghee Seo, NML study, 09)
    • 6. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen What does the Acer-EUN pedagogical netbook pilot entail? image: a Spanish netbook student
    • 7. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Six countries participating 7
    • 8. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen • Pre-pilot: January to June 2010 – 10 classes per country = all in all 60 classes – 5 teachers per class = 50 teachers per country = all in all 300 teachers involved • Pilot: September 2010 to June 2011 – 40 classes per country = all in all 240 classes – 5 teachers per class = 250 teachers per country = all in all 1200 teachers involved Set-up About 8000 netbooks out!
    • 9. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen • Each participating school allocates a netbook team: 4-5 teachers, ICT coordinator and school head • School’s leadership team’s support • School receives – Netbooks for learners (± 27) – Notebooks for teachers (5) – School: desktop (mini server) + monitor Netbook team and equipment

    • 14. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Pedagogical support
    • 15. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen The use of 1:1 in education : • highlights the fact that the learners have access to netbooks at all times • takes advantage of blended learning approach alternating different activities, • e.g. teacher-led vs. individual or collaborative activities, online or offline activities Do netbooks require a different type of pedagogy?
    • 16. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Variety of activities during a 1:1 lesson Frontalteaching Group Individual

    • 19. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Useless to aim for 100% usage rate!
    • 20. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen 1:1 pedagogical scenarios • Help teachers “orchestrate” the learning situations with netbooks • The interplay : – between different activities – between individual and social processes • Short sequences alternating activities (e.g. sequencing different activities) • Describe the organisationl conditions (material and tools, classroom setting, estimated time, evaluation) • Step-by-step • Suggestion rather than prescriptive • Not subject-specific or detailed lesson plans • http://www.netbooks.eun.org/web/acer/resources
    • 21. 8-10 November 2010 Copenhagen Orchestration of learning activities E.g see Ingo Kollar (2010), rchestratingLearni: EducationalPsychologyPerspectiveО http://www.slideshare.net/jtelss10/summer-school-kollar-final
