The digital landscape and implications for teaching and learning

  1. 1. the digital landscape implications for teaching and learning
  2. 2. Our values and norms in education are being challenged by a shifting landscape of media and communications in which youth are central actors.
  3. 3. buzzwords Social Media gather, communicate, share, collaborate, play Web 2.0 social media tools
  4. 4. virtual spaces MUVEs: multi-user virtual environments Narrative environments : game style worlds Virtual worlds Social & professional networks Sharing & collaborative spaces Aggregation & storage Products & services [e-commerce] Information sources In these spaces, people: // run businesses & engage in e-commerce // live, love & learn // create & construct // play, trade & socialise // make their voices heard
  5. 5. web as participatory platform ‘us-ness’ | community | participation
  6. 6. so plugged in, yet so disconnected “We [need to] use social media in the classroom not because our students use it, but because we are afraid that social media might be using them – that they are using social media blindly, without recognition of the new challenges and opportunities they might create.” M. Wesch
  7. 7. awash with stuff
  8. 8. what would education look like if it resembled the culture?
  9. 9. current technology demands a totally different approach to instructional design and teaching methodology it requires new skills from both teacher and student
  10. 10. social media matters in education What’s important: the properties and dynamics of social media – not the tools – and how to evolve with them.
  11. 11. digital age literacy Being able to access the internet; find, manage and edit digital information; join in communications; and engage with an online information and communications network impact on a person’s potential to communicate and learn.
  12. 12. Rethinking the who, what, where & when of learning. The delivery & distribution of learning. From prescriptive to connective practices. Who participates in the learning process. Learning spaces. 21st Century Education
  13. 13. responding to opportunites & challenges // Trying to protect students and instructional time by banning Web 2.0 or setting policies to keep it “safe.” // Preserving existing programs and practices by using technology in a way that “fits” into what is already in place. // Taking a progressive approach by allowing technology to transform the organisation rather than moving it faster and further on its existing path.
  14. 14. Teachers are the learning professionals and catalysts. When you put them in the mix with new technology, you get powerful outcomes.
