21st century learning spaces

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning<br />Argue that classrooms themselves are constraints to new ways of teaching and learning.<br />‘Spaces shape and change practice’ <br />New and refurbished learning spaces are no longer classrooms to hold 30 students and 1 teacher in fixed box style, single purpose rooms<br />There is a strong movement away from computer labs as learning spaces, replaced by more flexible use of technology in all learning spaces.<br />Diane Brook, Sydney Catholic Education Office<br />
  3. 3. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning<br />Shift towards collaborative learning and its impact on learning design<br />Collaboration is not new but there is a new environment in which we live<br />Teachers who use collaborative learning approaches think of themselves less as authentic transmitters of knowledge and more as designers of intellectual experiences.<br />Benefits<br />Student engagement and participation increases<br />Access to information, knowledge and networks greater outside of the classroom – technology enables that<br />Students are creators and consumers of knowledge and services<br />Reference : Collaboration in Teaching and Learning, education.au<br />

Creative and adaptive</li></li></ul><li>Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning<br />Integration of ICT and Multimedia Technologies in classroom environment<br />What are the technologies to be adopted in the next two-three years<br />Collaborative Environments<br />If there is a shift to collaborative learning then technology provides rich environments for sharing<br />Social networks, virtual learning environments, still and video sharing, wikipedia<br />Communication Tools<br />Whilst email is not dead….yet, there is a definite switch to other forms of communication<br />Web conferencing, Skype, IM, Blogs, wikis, Twitter<br />Mobile Devices<br />Notebooks, Netbooks, iphones, ipod touch, mobile phones, WII, Xbox<br />Wireless connections, inside and outside of schools<br />Cloud Computing<br />Large data farms for services such as Youtube, Flickr, Google docs means free spaces<br />Other data farms allow students to access real time data<br />Eg Earth Browser, Google Maps, Gap Minder<br />Technologies in 4-5 year time frame<br />Smart Objects<br />These objects know about themselves, their environment, characteristics and can present information <br />Objects will be able to consume and adapt to information they are receiving (eg LEGO MindStorms which students program)<br />Personal Web/Life Streaming<br />Customisable and brings together your digital footprint (eg me.edu.au)<br />Reference : Horizon Report 2009 New Media Consortium<br />
  19. 19. Technology is a key enabler of collaborative learning<br />Integration of ICT and Multimedia Technologies in classroom environment<br />Digital Education Revolution<br />If the nature of learning varies at anyone time in class, then you don’t need 32 of anything!!<br />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.<br />Still require electrical connections to power machines, wireless connections critical.<br />Government is funding through DER – some decisions being made are a little puzzling.<br />Eg 3G and Next G networks almost silent in the NBN<br />Putting 32 computers into a traditional classroom just doesn’t work.<br />Students should be able to connect to devices anywhere<br />How long before the govt will fund a tax break for parents to purchase computers to take into schools.<br />Between home, school and the community<br />Fit for purpose purchase<br />Provision for fixed and mobile devices…….(eg IWB’s, multi-media machines, iphones, netbooks)<br />Quick and reliable access to <br />Dynamic and interactive curriculum materials, collaborative and data rich services, and personalised learning spaces<br />
