21st Century Learning Spaces Sa

  1. 1.
  2. 2. 21st Century Learning Spaces<br />Argue that classrooms themselves are constraints to new ways of teaching and learning.<br />Will ‘Kevin’s Revolution’ result in ‘Transformative Practice’?<br />‘Spaces shape and change practice’ <br />Ref : Learning Spaces : ICT Taskforce<br />
  3. 3. 21st Century Learning Spaces<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 />
  4. 4. Preferred Learning Styles<br />Shift away from simply instructionally led learning<br />Constructivist Learning<br />Students construct knowledge through experiential learning<br />Collaborative learning<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 />Networked learning<br />George Siemens talks about the expertise living and breathing in networks<br />Connections become extremely important<br />Learner at the centre (personalised learning)<br />The system conforms to the learner rather than the learner to the system.<br />Offers support for individual needs and learning preference.<br />Reference : Collaboration in Teaching and Learning, education.au<br />
  5. 5. 21st Century Skills<br />Partnerships for 21st Century Skills<br />Mastery of core subjects and 21st Century interdisciplinary themes into core subjects<br />Life and Career Skills<br />Learning and Innovation<br />Information, Media and Technology Skills<br />Reference : P21 , US based Consortium<br />Reference : Partnerships for 21st Century Skills<br />
  6. 6. Is our physical space a constraint?<br />Shift towards collaborative and networked learning and its impact on learning design<br />Reference : 21st Century Learning Spaces : Edorigami blog<br /><ul><li>19th, 20th Century classroom design
  7. 7. Teacher centric
  8. 8. Students passive – empty vessels to fill
  9. 9. One to many communication
  10. 10. Lack flexibility
  11. 11. Have limited support for technology
  12. 12. Individual rather than group focussed
  13. 13. Unable to be adapted for multiple use</li></li></ul><li>Technology is an enabler of collaborative and networked learning<br />Technology Trends<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 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 )<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 />
  14. 14. Technology is an enabler of collaborative and networked learning<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 />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 />The information rich world is outside of the classroom - <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 environments (real and virtual)<br />
  15. 15. Amplify and extend experiences through technology<br />What kind of experiences are possible?<br />Geography<br />Use of Google earth to map and research country, culture, demographics and geography.<br />Records of field trips include video, stills, audio which can be shared or worked collaboratively with other classes<br />Languages<br />Use of Immersive learning environments to simulate a Japanese breakfast table. Having conversations in Japanese and English in real time with peers.<br />Listening and immersing in language through the use of iPod Touch/iPhone<br />Science<br />Map pH concentrations along the River Torrens on a map, label high pollutant areas and write to local councils about your results.<br />Capture data, plot graphs and analyse trends and what if scenarios<br />Arts<br />Online music collaboration<br />Online galleries and museums<br />
  16. 16. Impact on 21st Century Spaces<br />Shift towards collaborative and networked learning and its impact on learning design<br />Reference : 21st Century Learning Spaces : Edorigami blog<br /><ul><li>Focus is on the learner and their learning preferences
  17. 17. Technology literate and adept
  18. 18. Media savvy (sometimes not having critical literacy skills)
  19. 19. Flexible, multi-tasking and not passive
  20. 20. Communicators and collaborators
  21. 21. Interactive and networked
  22. 22. Creative and adaptive
  23. 23. Producers and consumers of information and knowledge.</li></li></ul><li>Technology is an enabler of collaborative and networked learning<br />Embedding technologies into learning spaces<br /><ul><li>Qantas Club Model
  24. 24. Open space is designed for a range of activities
  25. 25. Furniture reflects different activities
  26. 26. Quiet individual reflection, group celebration, workbenches with power, long term work benches

  28. 28. Able to switch between individual and group settings
  29. 29. Technology provision
  30. 30. Not an after thought
