Ambient Learning City (ELSE 2015)

  1. 1. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 @fredgarnett Bilbao Bordeaux Lewisham Lisboa Pula
  2. 2. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 @fredgarnett • Background • Emergent Learning Model • New Partnerships New learning eco-systems • Learning Contexts ‘beyond the classroom’ • Metaphors & Object-centred sociality • Building new informal learning eco-systems • Conclusions; 1 - 6
  3. 3. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Open Context Model of Learning • Background • Web2.0 Architectures of Participation • Tech Tools; participatory & collaborative • Can learning be participatory & collaborative? • Open Context model of learning • If we can learn in multiple contexts • How do we design for learning contexts?
  4. 4. P A H Teacher School Teacher/ Learner Learner Research Cognition Epistemic Cognition Meta- Cognition Adult
  5. 5. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Emergent Learning Model • Emergent Learning Model • Post Bologna process EU wanted to integrate; • formal, non-formal & informal learning • But! By sector; school college community • We wanted to integrate by learning process; • Social, resources, accreditation • So we created a development framework (a tool to support problem-solving in undefined contexts)
  6. 6. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Ambient Learning City • New Partnerships; New learning eco-systems • An Ambient Learning City needs partners • The partners create a resource eco-system • Can be learning, cultural, touristic, history… • We worked with Manchester City Council • Industrial, textiles, shipping, football, MUSIC! • Northern Quarter, digital corridor, Universities • Peoples Voice Media; LSEN, MADlab, Media City
  7. 7. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Social Cities of Tomorrow • MOSI-ALONG Partnership; • JISC Community Content Project • A cultural partner knowing economic history • Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) • LSEN, Community Centres City, Libraries, • developing Digital Learning Champions • People’s Voice #Digital Media Literacy (NGO) • Stories of Economic History & Futures…
  8. 8. Ambient Learning City MOSI-ALONG
  9. 9. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 The Participatory Museum • Learning Contexts; Beyond the Classroom; • Not! A community collection curated by experts like RunCoCo • More than content – A participatory museum • Creating narratives with object-centred sociality using people’s own objects • Using new metaphors to stimulate learning • Digital Cabinets of Curiosity
  10. 10. Ambient Learning City Digital / Cabinets of Curiosities
  11. 11. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Cabinets of Curiosity • Developing New Contexts for learning; • With object-centred sociality (Nina Simon) • (#digital) fascinating Cabinets of Curiosity; “collections of objects whose categorical boundaries were… yet to be defined” (Wikipedia, 2015)
  12. 12. Post-scarcity Ecology of Resources rethinking contexts Making Curricula, Organisation, Administration Adaptive
  13. 13. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Everything is a Metaphor • Building New Informal Learning Systems; • Inviting Mancunians to create digital ‘Cabinets’ • Working with digital learning support staff • Rethinking social media use (AtC) • Created informal learning eco-system for • a) people interested in Manchester econ history • b) using social media to support their own ways of learning, curating and discussing

  15. 15. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Information Ecologies • Conclusion 1. • build new partnerships to source funding and create a framework in which proposed new informal learning might develop and flourish • design appropriate information ecologies which reflect partners interests and provide appropriate resources for the new informal learning eco-systems you hope to develop
  16. 16. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Architecture of Participation • Conclusion 2. • The more complex the new informal learning eco-system you hope to develop then the more problems you will have to solve • The most critical & most significant problems will emerge during the project and cannot be anticipated nor solved before you begin • that’s Emergence! – Development Frameworks for design will allow new problems to be solved
  17. 17. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Before & After MOOCs • Conclusion 3. • You have to address the critical problem of how to create a transformative system for informal learning • existing institutions are only interested in e- enabling existing, customary, formal practice • New metaphors for stakeholder engagement can be a way of addressing this – metaphors create new spaces for new eco-systems
  18. 18. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 MOSI-ALONG Social Media Festival • Conclusion 4. • You need to develop new ways of measuring the successful outcomes of new models of informal learning in order to satisfy both partner organisations and participants • we developed a social media festival to showcase work produced during the project
  19. 19. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Aggregate then Curate • Conclusion 5. • We also developed a social media learning model, Aggregate then Curate, to solve the problem of linking the informal use of social media to formal learning outcomes • Aggregate then Curate captures one dimension of emergence, that is the non-linear nature of the project, and still needs further testing…

  21. 21. Ambient Learning City ELSE11, Bucharest, April 2015 Aggregate then Curate paper • Conclusion 6. • Building Ambient Learning City is an emergent process with unanticipated problems to solve which all partners must deal with • The best outcome an Ambient Learning City project can produce is A complex learning eco- system & a new learning information ecology • (Full paper for this presentation)
