Learning theories have implications in learning spaces … “ ” (Brown, 2005)
Traditonal paradigm -Teaching vs Constructivist paradigm-Learning Determinants to 21st century learning spaces… Memorization vs understanding Recall vs discovery One size fits all vstailored; option rich Talent via weeding out vs talent cultivated Repetition vstransfer and construction Acquisition of facts vs facts + conceptual framework Transmission vsconstruction Fixed rolesvsmobile roles Fixed classrooms vsmobile convertible classrooms Single location vs plurality of locations & space types Isolated facts vsorganized conceptual schemes “ (Brown, 2005)
Well … through the design proposals of possible indoors, outdoors, physical, virtual , or blended scenarios where learning can take place. Spaces for anyone, anywhere, spaces for 21st century learners A view of 21st centurylearner s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NzQqPH3JRw
In modernlearningspaces… “The design and flow of content and interaction takes place for the student, who controls the access to course content and instructional choice” (Reinhard, 2009 ) There is always space to think and share enhancing community and creativity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra5ba1dyF9s&feature=fvsrd
Learningspacesdesign: Conceives multipurpose spaces for integrated communication, collaboration, and computing technologies; the basis for learning spaces to morph. Innovates the uses of space and technology enabling teaching-learning tasks, leading to more effective learning. Focuses on ”how learner expectations influence the development and use of space, the principles and activities that facilitate learning, and the role of technology from the perspective of those who create learning environments”. (Brown, 2005)
“The design of learning spaces goes beyond the physical to include the virtual. Educators, technologists, and space planners are combining technology, pedagogy, learning science, and virtual and physical spaces. They are trying to answer questions such as: What types of activities lead to learning?” (Reinhard, 2009). They use a mixed areas tool box for forming or conceiving whether a classroom, a laboratory, a library, or an informal space with a main objective: to enhance learning.
our role “Teachers are a fundamental part of the process” (Reinard, 2009) of making learners and learning more successful by becoming learning spaces designers for formal and informal learning.
Learning Space Designer’s missionis :Making physical and virtual spaces that work out traits, principles and applications for a functional learning space such as:
Virtual environments can resemble or improve physical learning spaces (Saumell, 2010) and enhance community’s roles. Blogs (Virtual works & ideas… exhibition) Campus site (Study garden) Student service website Good-tutorials ( Virtual Tutorials) Facebook (Virtual Socialisation) Bubbl.us – Wikispace (Online Collaboratories) E-brary (Virtual library)
