  3. 3. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiINTRODUCTION TO THE TEAM WORK1. The Future Classroom and Learning EnvironmentsIn this topic, were discussing new technologies and equipment. What kind of technologieswill we use in the 2020 classroom? What do the classrooms look like? Are there desks anymore? Are there separate classrooms or classes any more? How will all the changes affect learning?Recent trends in learning technology: • cloud services • mobile technology • specialization • visualization • interactivity • socializing (social networks)Recent trends in learning environments: • independent of place and time • learning communities • intertwining and integration of formal and informal learning • from closed, private environments to open environments and networks • from physical space to virtual space • out from the school building to the outside world both in reality and virtuallyHow do these trends affect learning? Which of them will survive? Can you see newtrends in technology emerging?What kind of standing would you take for BYOD - bring your own device - at school?2. Learning and the learner in 2020In this topic, we think about and discuss the future school from the viewpoint of the learnerand learning. We can discern three scenarios which will probably overlap to some degreeand be dominant at different age levels.Three scenarios of learning from the learners point of view: 1. Individual learning paths using e.g. game-based-learning (the curriculum is based on skills so that the students can choose what and how they learn according to their strengths and interests, joining and leaving groups, studying at home or at school with a teacher as a tutor and a guide) 2. Collaborative learning using problem-, project- or inquiry-based learning methods (this resembles a lot the student-centered flipped classroom model in 2
  4. 4. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi which students study alone at home and most of the work at school is in collaborative teams and networks) 3. Learning based on given content, strict goals and effective use of tools (this resembles most the current system in which the subject content is defined in the curriculum and modern effective tools and digitalized learning materials are used under teachers control)List of trends and hot topics in learning • independent learners and individual learning paths • differentiation • student-centered learning methods and collaborative learning (project, inquiry or problem based) • peer assessment and continuous assessment • developing learning materials: digital, visual, interactive, videos • games based learning • flipped classroomKey skills and competences in 2020What are they and where and how they are best learned?3. Teachers profession in 2020 • Whats teacher’s role in the future classroom? • In addition to those needed today, what new skills and competences will be required from a teacher? • How will teaching environment be different? • How will teachers continuous professional development be arranged?Trends in teaching: • from teaching alone to teaching together (co-teaching) • from teaching each subject separately to holistic teaching in teams • teachers as guides and facilitators • from teachers individual autonomy to collective autonomy • from teacher-centered to learner-centered • from classrooms to virtual environments • from hierarchies to networksFive Scenarios: Teachers’ profession in 2025Scenario 1 - European Education Network 3

  7. 7. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi New Technologies How do they benefit or could be integrated into learning?Mobile learning The children are digital natives so they use always Mobile phones, so the teachers could make some work using them in a pedagogical way, inside classes not for fun but for learning. Firstly, the new technologies are very handy, offer accurate information in time, when you need it. Secondly, they are attractive - this determines the children to manipulate them so much. It’s a very immediate solution in case a doubt arises, children can access the Internet or contact the teachers when they need to.elearning platform All schools in my country have been supplied with an elearning platform. This will definitely have its place in our system as a lot of money has been invested. The benefits for my very young students is the link being created between home and school. Children and parents can see the learning taking place during school hours. Young children can find it difficult to express their experiences but the elearning platform will meet this need. Learning does not take place only at school especially with young children but also at home. Having this link will lead to a continuation of this learning which will be in a full circle. The elearning platform is one of the most intelligent inventions in our time. Active and interactive learning environments which are able to involve participants in collaborative learning, stimulate creativity, develop ICT skills. During the learning process the children practice their critical thinking, share opinions more easily, find out new things, are stimulated in problem solving.- Alina D. I believe that these platforms allow each student to work at his/her own pace and according to his/her available time and they also take the learning experience further when it comes to being able to access it anywhere, not just in a classroom. For me elearning platform is in the beginning but we have a blog (me and my children) that is the connection to the families and they could see the work we’ve done. The elearning platform i think it will replace the first book of reading and numeracy.Interactive whiteboards IWBs is a new technology which motivates the children. They pave the way to digital literacy. An interactive whiteboard sustain learning in various ways. We’re really sorry, there are no interactive whiteboards in Romanian schools yet. The interactive whiteboard features capabilities that allow significantly change the nature of information worked, times, spaces and the dynamics of the classroom, that 6
  8. 8. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi motivate students and help their learning and development.In our Kindergarten classroom we use it a lot and children (3,4 and 5 years old) are so found of it that they use to call it “Our magic board”. I’ve been working with them for three years now and they are a true blessing!You save time and money when preparing your classes, you profit from a more visual and interactive experience that motivates your students and you have all sort of possibilities for each theme you wish to present. We are dreaming of the day in each class from Romania will be a ineractive whiteboard!Educational soft I use educational software to enhance learning on various topics. Children are attracted to computer games and so while playing you can check acquired knowledge or learning new things. Yes, there is a large range of educational soft for each preschool subject we teach. That part during the activity, in which we use the soft, is the most attractive and active. Children just love all the tasks, games, or the way information is exposed. They appreciate the quick feedback they usually receive and are in a great competition with each other.- Alina D. Is a very good help for the teacher and a very good way for children for their learning and improving their skills. I use it just as much as any other commercially created resource and I don’t think that they are all perfect so it’s important for us to adapt and create our own materials more balanced with our students’ needs and skills. But still, I find educational software a good help, specially if it’s not too expensive anr complicated to use. We use simple and interactive educational software special for math and sciense and for foreign languages.Computer in the classroom Even if it sounds obsolete, in my area and in Italy as a whole, there aren’t many classes with a pc in it. I believe that if we don’t help children to find a few different uses of the pc, this will be used at home mainly for the social networks and for digital games. New technologies, in Rome and in the south of Italy, still means getting the teachers to be trained in the various uses of the personal computers. This also means that the majority of the adults around our children still considers the pc as a means of “distracting” children from the real school work. This is a habit that has to be dealt with before anything very good can happen with the new technologies. I would start from the younger teachers and from the old ones who are willing to go on training course in order to renovate their ways of teaching. I am one of the old ones: until twelve years ago I wasn’t even able to switch on a pc. I can now work with it in an interactive way. It is really a matter of goodwill and enthusiasm. As I said above, the new generations of children are born for 7
  9. 9. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi learning and working on the computer. The computers shouldn’t miss from the classrooms! They are the appropriate learning environments which offer everything the children need in one particular moment. - Alina D. It is our third arm, a very good ally in the class. We had an interesting experiment that costed a lot of money when the government decided to offer free computers to primary school students. Those were small computers, sort of netbooks, and the idea was great and I even managed to teach some very interesting classes when all students had a computer on his/her desk.They were able to work at different paces and do different tasks and it was very good. But as soon as the computers started to malfunction ar the students started to leave them at home because they wouldn’t want to carry them on the schoolbag the whole thing lost steam...So now I use my own computer along with the interactive board and children stand up and work in the interactove board on at a time. I don’t think that the computer will ever replace a teacher in the classroom. For me is a positive experience, they could use it for fun and for learning and for the smaller they start to use all the elements and connect with internet, is the first experience. Is the way to connect with the colleagues from etwinning and others colleagues from other kindergartens. Yes , I use computer in my class and in my activities with children, parents and for me because i think this fact is a new dimension of education.Mind Maps Mindmapping is an innovative method created by Toni Buzan. It’s suitable for teachers and students in order to learn and teach different languages more effectively. Actually this is a new technology which can change language learning in future school. It’s suitable for young learners, too. Children are so glad when they study through mind maps. This is the way they learn more interesting and useful things. What will schools and learning environments look like?Large classrooms with lots of space and resources for children, interactive digital boards,laptop computers or tablets to have different experiences and be in touch with othercolleagues from other countries all over the world, places outside with lots of materials toplay with safety. Have contact with children with different special needs and interculturaldiversity. Collaboration with parents in an interactive way. 2020 and beyond I really hope that the schools’ environment will eventually look like abig factory where children and adults have a common aim: getting on well together whilelearning from each other. I still very much believe in what Neill swrote on this subject aboutthirty years ago: unless we share something very important with our children, their interestwill never be brightly expressed. This is one of the reasons why in so many school 8
  10. 10. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmienvironments children still look so bored and dependant on the teacher’s instructions.I imagine large spaces, where buildings are concentrated in purposes: the eating area, thereading area, the sporting area and so on. There is a great need of important humanrelationships, which can’t really be pursued if not connected to a common plan, tothoughtful action, to the doing of the everyday school.The future schools will be well prepared referring to teachers and technology. There will bea lot of learning labs (like this one) which will offer ways to discover and develop keycompetences for each child, valuing every person and helping him/her to achieve thewanted place in society, performing, at a high quality level, his role. A friendly space, withthings and activities made at the normal speed, not in a hurry. A place in which thechildren will be always eager to return.- Alina D.I do not know and I even cannot imagine. But one thing I am sure of different and Isincerely hope that it will meet students’ interests and needs of students. it will be lessexposing and more involving.I imagine schools with lots of open spaces and connected to the surrounding community.Actually this year I just started working in a new type of school that politicians areimplementing n Portugal, these schools are very big, with lots of students but its theirlocation that determines the architectural structures and even contributes to the learningenvironment and activities planning. My school is located near a big park with all sorts oftrees and flowers and birds and we can go there with our students whenever we like...Isthere a better way to teach them something than by letting them contact with nature andtouch and smell things? I think technology will play a great part in the future but so willlocal communities and open air spaces.I imagine kindergarten schools moving away from a primary school building. They will besurrounded by a natural environment. Technology will be available to the children but itwill not take priority over other essential skills and natural material which young childrenneed to explore. I imagine a green school with many plants, many trees inside the hall and a green roofcovered by grass. This school no grey concrete wall but glass, special glass likeinteractive tablets. The school is open to all kind of experiment and experience and schoolis the bridge to social community.We are there to guide children in this amazing world where human respect all around.The school will be more different. Computers, innovative methods, new ICT tools,interactive whiteboards...the future school will change everything. The new technologieswill help children to be more creative and creativity will be a main aim. PART 2 1.

Game is the first interaction between children and environment and society .The game need actors without them we loses value and purpose.Game - based learning is too important foryoung learners. It makes the learningprocess interesting for children, especiallywhen they study languages.

A possible scenario would consist oftheoretical and practical training of teachers by European specialist, implementing pilot projects for a period that will follow weaknesses and strengths.Perhaps teachers will be creative persons like scientists who will inspire pupils tostudy hard, and parents to help them. Theywill be creators of ideas, programmes, new technologies, not only performers. 14

  17. 17. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi New Technologies How do they benefit or could be integrated into learning?-digital assistant -sending information to their students. This would require that each student in the class have their own PDA and theview.asp?id=41222 information would be sent by an infrared beam from the teacher’s PDA. This way at the end of the year instead of throwing away millions of papers you need only to wipe the hardrive clean. It would also help to cut down costs for copies and paper for copiers, thus giving schools more room in their budget. Yet another advantage of having a paperless classroom is the reduction in time spent at the copy machine.-knowledge webs -knowledge webs are ways of communicating information using “conferences that provide an instant network ofview.asp?id=41222 contacts with useful skills, a personal brain trust scattered geographically” An example could be visiting a ZOO that the students could explore and learn about without actually having to go anywhere.-virtual communities -By using virtual communities we “satisfy these needs at any time, in any place” (Dede.) Some believe that virtualview.asp?id=41222 communities can help” bring about close cooperation and shared responsibility” (Dede) between parents, students and teachers.- personal teachers pod - easy way to make your teaching available without limits ofcasts space and time- smartphone - make the most of it for learning,Online collaborative How they can be integrated in learning?platforms They can be the medium for projects involving students of the same school, of the same country or of different countries! Thus, students will be motivated because they will have learning and project progress on their hands and will be working in real time situations. Furthermore, they will enhance their collaborative skills and acquire knowledge on each topic that will be chosen.Smartphones (internet How they can be integrated in learning?capable phones) I believe that in the future much software will be developed for the use of such devices in learning. For example smartphones could be used as quiz tools that wil be working in real time.The teacher will ask a multiple question on his PC and they will answer through their smartphones. Such processes will provide easy and quick feedback for the teacher. Also students will feel more relaxed as smartphones are part of their everyday life. 16
  18. 18. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiCloud Technology How it can be integrated in learning? As a facilitator in sharing, exchanging and editing archives. Students will easily communicate with their teacher or with each other, when for example they have a project to work on. Cloud technology saves money (photocopies) and time. Collaborative, community- Classroom/Laboratory with many and diverse digital based online tools AND equipment: place to make experience and then share it, rate tools for making world it, comment it, think about it. experience with sense Learn and share, share and learn.flipped classroom the flipped classroom model encompasses any use of Internet technology to leverage the learning in the classroom so that the teacher spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing.This is common being done using teaching created videos that students view outside the classroom.Tablets the technology would benefit student learningGames we can make games as we want and we see answers of students. It’s interesting and usefull in the same timeNetbooks and laptops They feature tools like a camera, writing stylus and audio recording capabilities help to encourage a multimodal approach to learning. Rethinking mental health Mental health is how we think, feel and behave as we face the daily ups and downs of our lives. Mental health problems such as depression are the leading cause of disability for young people worldwide. Prevention, early detection and treatment are key issues. But stigma continues to surround mental health and it is often difficult for people to get the help they need What will schools and learning environments look like?Learning will be more active and connected to real life, technologies will be an integral partof learning and life and teachers will become lifelong learners themselves. All the learningobjectives and competences are already needed now, not only in 2020.Conclusion: we should adapt school to the learners and first step is to adapt ourselves..School will be open places where students could have real experience and can discussabout it with teachers and online communities. Every students will have real and virtualworld in the same time and teachers have to drive students experience and use oftechnology for best and useful learning. What is the best learning: the learning that can bebreak down and then reassemble in a new way many and many times.The whole learning experience will be based upon new learning interfaces and novelenabling communication technologies.Using new technology students will learn the things needed for everyday life. Learning willbe more active because students like to explore things using new technology 17

We will teach youngpeople to value self-directed learning,will teach them how to learn on their own terms, andhow to create an individual time schedule. We will combine face time with learningonline.Teachers will be guides in the students learning journey, will coach and moderatetheir learning. They will motivate, give options and lead students learning in directions thatare most beneficial for their development.The highly integrated use of technologies in our futures life requires that teachers have ahigh level of digital competence. They need to be able to design and prepare ICT-based 19
  21. 21. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina Sarisalmi learning objects and models.Teacher training should be a lifelong learning task and supported by school organisations. Teachers need to enhance their knowledge of students’ learning needs and also develop their teaching methods through networking, observing and peer learning from other teachers. Future learning will require learners to improve their transversely skills, like the ability to think laterally, creativity and adaptability. Also learning to learn and initiative taking will make them self aware of the learning process and enhance it. Students can independently explore, discover, and make learning more exciting for themselves. First we must teach our students how to learn and explore them self because today with that curriculum that we have most of things we give them. They must be able to use ICT - this is future of learning. Teachers also need to develop their teaching methods and cooperating with teachers from other countries.

There will be other learning environments, as well.
