The International Institute of Multimedia in Paris asked me to participate to a brainstrom : "how can we innovate in education using less square footage". As I could'nt make it to the brainstorm, I put together a presentation, and as I did it for free, I'm sharing it with you guys.

How to innovate in education using less square footage How to innovate in education using less square footage Presentation Transcript

  • How can we innovate in education and use less square meters? © By Patricia Gallot-Lavallée – Kenazart, experiencedesigners.net – February 2010.
    • « Doctors update once their entire knowledge base in their career. »
    • Source TedxParis, january 2010
    Even doctors have to learn how to learn ©Cartoon stock
  • What would I say education is about?
    • Developing reflexes (writing documents, setting tests for what you do)
    As a self-taught, Acquiring a technical expertise (giving you a box, a vocabulary and a culture) Communication skills Learning to sell yourself / your company, Learning to work with others Building confidence Experience, peer reviews, theories (a plan) and examples. Sense that you haven’t missed a part of the program. And others trust, someone else certified that I’m not full of… Being part of a network, making friends, potential future business partners.

  • Learning is like climbing stairs towards your future. Creating support from where you are to where you want to go. © creativeHunger - Fotolia.com
  • To me teaching is about making those steps achievable. © cubens - Fotolia.com
    • Creating an educational program is like building a multi-directional stair system. So students can have as many opportunities on the market as possible.
    • As a teacher, I feel sometimes that I’m pulling kids up. The more students, the harder it gets.
    Especially if they are not in the room or if they don’t want to. www.mayhew.org
  • I’ve found a way, thought, by taking them one by one, listening to their « dream » and making them see how « my course » is going to help them go towards that project. And then it rolls! E.g.: Stephanie and the art of title sequence Cc Kenazart, experiencedesigners.net
  • W h o h a v e b e e n my g re a t t e a c h e r s? As a self-taught,
  • Desire, purpose
    • E.g. : me and French spelling
    • E.g. : me and being a sponge at learning how to create dynamic websites, and not wanting to learn Javascript.
    • E.g. : my Box, my ekkiguy, my star, my role in society.
    • Something that I have already proven to be good at.

  • Montessori and its independent study model, kids pick the material to the things they want to learn that day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTpAILazPnM
  • The Show, its deadlines
    • E.g.: Accessibility group exercise, no more « to the bin » deliverables.
    • E.g.: Mathieu W. saying doing something that we can show afterwards.
    • E.g.: The buzzies awards
    • E.g.: The proud 3D at IIM annual diploma show
    • E.g.:The build your virtual world show

  • People will always use the solution that hurts less. Crédit photo : © Barbara Helgason #3283191
  • The “no other choice method”
    • E.g.: Best absent teacher ever is Benoit.
    • E.g.: English only. The best way to learn English is to go to England and try.
    It is tough to pull neurons together. © ktsdesign - Fotolia.com
  • Visualizing and self-correcting methods
    • E.g.: Example of Thierry: « test to see where it stopped working. »
    • E.g.: English teacher, 4 steps to acquire a new word. Try to learn 3 words a day.
    • E.g.: Montessori self-correcting learning games.
    • E.g.: Google, if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.
  • Deep in me, thinking that others must know or have something, I don’t.
    • I used to say : “Insecurity, the creative best enemy.” but it doesN’T HAVE to be that way.

  • Others, groups
    • Kids in India, self-teaching English in groups using one computer.
    • Montessori, groups of kids talking to one another.
    • “ In e-learning, we organize weekly conference calls. The key is about talking to someone else about it.  », la Fing/Lift conference, Marseille 2009.
    • They translate what they understand to each other. eg: Gilles, 3D and Julien G.
    • E.g.: Others questions and maieutics: Surgeon asking me to run my experience design methodology and talk to them on how to announce bad news to patients.
  • Learning is a process Why did I get only a 18/20? E.g.: Vincent B. and search engine optimization techniques . Grades can be a powerful tool
  • Challenges slightly too hard
    • http:// www.ted.com/talks/neil_gershenfeld_on_fab_labs.html
    • Buzzies awards, the 5000 challenge in 4 days.
    • For more about the The Flow see http://www.strategy-interactive.com/blog/images/the_flow_big.jpg
    The Flow, this moment when you don’t see the time go by. This moment when you surf between skills and challenge.
  • Teachers available when I’m available
  • As a self-taught
    • I feel that I’m being pulled up.
    • I didn’t cost much to the society.
    • I didn’t use much space (square meter).
    • I know I can do exactly what I want.
    • I don’t have much friends, or « binome ». I build my own network.
    • I don’t have a certificate, I published a book to get a short cut to others trust.
    • I still cheat with the top bit on the educational part of my CV.
    • I still want to get a degree, I still think that the problem with kids is that they haven't had enough problems to be able to reflect on what they are being told.
    • « I want to be a doctor in psychology, in socio-psychology ». To me it’s not about doing 10 years , it’s about a fantastic journey that will help me in my every day work and personal life. Just another slightly hard challenge.

  • Let’s go back to our question. How can we innovate in education while using less real estate? In 11.5 actions Cc Kenazart, experiencedesigners.net
  • Action 1: Create a repository of “missions”, which they are free to take when they want to.
  • Example of missions
    • Publish an advanced Q and A on prices, law or a popular technical challenge.
    • Participate to an open-source program.
    • Produce creative commons and open-source contents
    • Write a tutorial in English or in French about the latest cool thing you saw
    • Publish an advanced Q and A on prices, law or technical challenge
    • In groups of 2, you have 4 days to produce an intranet for Lucie.
    • BAP, Cauet is looking for a new title sequence.
    • Participate on a project with another school… (cf Ponts et Chaussés et Science Po)
    • Participate to a challenge (like the Wif, or…)
    • Some challenges are way more valuable.
    • Students can submit their own challenge. E.g. : Olivier G. lipdub project. See, the I can vidéo http://www.ted.com/talks/kiran_bir_sethi_teaches_kids_to_take_charge.html
    • Students have to create their own team (see Google 80/20 rule effect on team seduction system)
    • Like in video games, you have to complete a level to release new challenges.
    • New content are released every now and again.
    • IIM lack of engineers, solving the agenda problem.
    • The mission contain keywords that refer to presentations. (see action 3)
    Bonuses of this challenge organization
  • Action 2: Classrooms become, theme spaces
    • Cf Dschool talk, mentions the energy in the room.
    • With great setups, the kind of setups that become famous (eg : bikes at Google)
    • Places where you can get the material, the tools. FabLabs
    • Some spaces are in English only
  • Action 3: On demand presentations & workshops
    • E.g. : “What is an accessible website…”
    • Videos available in iTunes U, YouTube and IIM websites.
    • Professional audience would be invited for recording, to improve the level.
    With quizzes and crossword puzzles to help with attention. http://www.strategy-interactive.com/blog/images/2010/histoire-du-web.png
  • Workshops are edutainment Students have to also be in their body, not only in their heads. Alice.org
  • Action 4: Mid-term tests using socratic method (by theme)
    • The socratic method, makes you study!!!
    • http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v =z2sMJwxLd-M
    • Passive learners
  • Action 5: Big shows
    • Where friends and family are invited.
    • Where other groups are welcome to come.
    • Randy Pausch had them every 2 weeks.
  • No more years, but « Houses »
    • Using competition and peer pressure
    • E.g.: Harry Potter
    • E.g.: Kinder eggs at MBA
    • It could be “The north”, “the east”, “the west” and “the south” to encourage them to meet somewhere else than at school.
  • Action 6: A school with a currency
    • Karma points for helping others, making connections.
    Getting independence points… Community “Poissons rouges” for letting down others. Examples at: http://www.strategy-interactive.com/blog/index.php/2009/12/24/396-a-chacun-sa-monnaie
  • A statistically valid peer’s review
    • See chart http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/randy_pausch_really_achieving_your_childhood_dreams.html
  • Action 7: Clear rules
    • Spelling.
    • All that I say uses examples, I prove that I have researched and looked at what others do.
    • Getting to a mid-term unprepared and you will get an E.
    • We have to create martyrs, the stories have to spread among them.
    © David Mathieu - Fotolia.com
  • Action 8: They all have to blog their results and where they are at.
    • Under real name or id number.
    • Once they make legend « their blog take the legend name ».
    • The « teacher » can come and review their work any time. They gain independence points if they publish enough.
    • Blog are by default, intranet, but when an article gets linked and used by others it get published online.
    • There is a ranking of the blogs. See wikio.
    • See Les carnets of Paris Descartes .
  •  
  • Action 9: There is an Aardvark / twitter / msn attached to the intranet
    • Once an IIM always an IIM, people remain connected.
    • Pretty private questions, can circulate.
  • Action 10: Getting companies to look at the challenges and say
    • “ we’ll hire the ones that have completed these challenges.”
    • E.g.: With the buzzies awards, the manager at Bayard service said to me « I’d hire an intern who can bring 5000 people on a page in 4 days. »
    http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/randy_pausch_really_achieving_your_childhood_dreams.html .
  • Action 11 : Recruiting students would be with tests that would hold the core values of the school
    • Curiosity tests (how does it work, questions)
    • House tests,
    • Love of beauty tests,
    • Interactive application that can be used on websites, communication campaigns, fairs and 1to1 interviews.
    Should a person that clicks on this button be recruited as a student or not?
  • Action 11,5 : A school with a specific vocabulary
    • http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_Disney_Imagineering
  •  
  • Students will be able to publish their achievements on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter.
  • So it’s pretty easy
    • Create a cool blog / twitter platform
    • Create a challenge / presentation platform
    • Make a game out of it.
    • And work through transition. :-)
  • Q / A section
  • What will teachers do?
    • Make or orchestrate the presentations (cf Ted.com or Techtoctv.)
    • Tedx.com tickets, professionals paying for the students.
    • A personal tutor, help the student search and see for himself « There are 54 spelling mistakes in your document, find them », what tests have you set up to see what’s happening…
    • Do a little match making.
    • Mid-term Socratic evaluations, review and give feedback.
    • Design the exercises.
    • Participate to the reviews.
  • Why would it use less space?
    • N W E S they could work from home.
    • Less control, optimization
    • Like traffic in Paris, when it’s impossible to take your car, people that can use another solution. Self adapting system.
  • How long would the tuition long?
    • 3 to 5 years
  • Where is the control in all that?
    • Traffic jams at St Arnoult, tills, most problems are the results of an adept to control things.
    • TedX story about 1819 teacher.
    • Sir Ken Robinson: “it’s their future”. http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html
    • The younger kids teaching the others, examples after minute 10. The youngest explain the oldest. http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_shows_how_kids_teach_themselves.html
  • What do they pay for? If the courses are all free online? If student have to use Google and online tutorials?
    • Cf Ted.com business model (the network)
    • Access to the hardware (FabLabs)
    • The final evaluation, the degree (because it’s famous)
    • Because they will always think that they will have missed something. :-)
  • What is the diploma?
    • The completions of sets of exercises (a number?)
  • How could the reputation of the school profit
    • Visibility given by Students’ blogs
    • Published advanced Q&A
    • The open source and creative commons content
    • The rumors (vocabulary, great pictures of the work spaces, the shows, IIM exclusive tools (eg Prices))…
  • The story of the Nobel prize-like chimpanzee that discovered how to separate rice from sand. It might also be nice to create a role-model super store. E.g.: Arnaud L.
