  • 1.
  • 2. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Argue that classrooms themselves are constraints to new ways of teaching and learning.
    ‘Spaces shape and change practice’
    New and refurbished learning spaces are no longer classrooms to hold 30 students and 1 teacher in fixed box style, single purpose rooms
    There is a strong movement away from computer labs as learning spaces, replaced by more flexible use of technology in all learning spaces.

  • 3. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Shift towards collaborative learning and its impact on learning design
    Collaboration is not new but there is a new environment in which we live
    Teachers who use collaborative learning approaches think of themselves less as authentic transmitters of knowledge and more as designers of intellectual experiences.
    Benefits
    Student engagement and participation increases
    Access to information, knowledge and networks greater outside of the classroom – technology enables that
    Students are creators and consumers of knowledge and services

    • Classrooms have improved since the 19th, 20th century
    • 6. Teacher centric
    • 7. Students passive – empty vessels to fill
    • 8. One to many communication
    • 9. Lack flexibility
    • 10. Have limited support for technology
    • 11. Individual rather than group focussed
    • 12. Unable to be adapted for multiple use
  • Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Shift towards collaborative learning and its impact on learning design
    Reference : 21st Century Learning Spaces : Edorigami blog
    • Focus is on the learner and their learning preferences
    • 13. Technology literate and adept
    • 14. Media savvy
    • 15. Flexible, multi-tasking and not passive
    • 16. Communicators and collaborators
    • 17. Interactive and networked
    • 18. Creative and adaptive
  • Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Integration of ICT and Multimedia Technologies in classroom environment
    What are the technologies to be adopted in the next two-three years
    Collaborative Environments
    If there is a shift to collaborative learning then technology provides rich environments for sharing
    Social networks, virtual learning environments, still and video sharing, wikipedia
    Communication Tools
    Whilst email is not dead….yet, there is a definite switch to other forms of communication
    Web conferencing, Skype, IM, Blogs, wikis, Twitter
    Mobile Devices
    Notebooks, Netbooks, iphones, ipod touch, mobile phones, WII, Xbox
    Wireless connections, inside and outside of schools
    Cloud Computing
    Large data farms for services such as Youtube, Flickr, Google docs means free spaces
    Other data farms allow students to access real time data
    Eg Earth Browser, Google Maps, Gap Minder
    Technologies in 4-5 year time frame
    Smart Objects
    These objects know about themselves, their environment, characteristics and can present information
    Objects will be able to consume and adapt to information they are receiving (eg LEGO MindStorms which students program)
    Personal Web/Life Streaming
    Customisable and brings together your digital footprint (eg me.edu.au)

  • 19. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Integration of ICT and Multimedia Technologies in classroom environment
    Digital Education Revolution
    If the nature of learning varies at anyone time in class, then you don’t need 32 of anything!!
    Trends suggest that broadband connections (24x7 and anywhere and global) and mobility are key characteristics to enable successful implementation of today’s or tomorrow’s technologies.
    Still require electrical connections to power machines, wireless connections critical.
    Government is funding through DER – some decisions being made are a little puzzling.
    Eg 3G and Next G networks almost silent in the NBN
    Putting 32 computers into a traditional classroom just doesn’t work.
    Students should be able to connect to devices anywhere
    How long before the govt will fund a tax break for parents to purchase computers to take into schools.
    Between home, school and the community
    Fit for purpose purchase
    Provision for fixed and mobile devices…….(eg IWB’s, multi-media machines, iphones, netbooks)
    Quick and reliable access to
    Dynamic and interactive curriculum materials, collaborative and data rich services, and personalised learning spaces
  • 20. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Embedding technologies into learning spaces
    • Qantas Club Model
    • 21. Space is designed for a range of activities
    • 22. Furniture reflects different activities
    • 23. Quiet individual reflection, group celebration, workbenches with power, long term work benches
    • 24. Technology provision
    • 25. must support different learning and access to teacher and student learning just in time.
  • Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning
    Embedding technologies into new learning spaces
    • New learning spaces need to be designed to enable and foster new pedagogies, using technologies demanded by 21st century economies.
    • 26. Flexible and adaptable - furnishings and equipment
    • 27. Can be rearranged with speed and ease.
    • 28. Able to switch between individual and group settings – for presentation, communication and collaboration modes
    • 29. Reflective of the new learning practices
    • 30. Designed to support different levels of technologicalsophistication
    • 31. Provided with wireless and mobile computing devices
