Technology Innovation A Curated Conversation

  1. 1. BIS Curated Conversations 2. Technology Innovation <ul><li>Professor Richard Noss TEL & </li></ul><ul><li>@FredGarnett London Knowledge Lab </li></ul>
  2. 2. Tech Innovation Overview <ul><li>Original discussion on Education Innovation ; </li></ul><ul><li>1. Redesigning learning and teaching; </li></ul><ul><li>Nigel Ecclesfield, Steve Ryan, Josh Underwood </li></ul><ul><li>2. Repurposing Cultural Contexts </li></ul><ul><li>Rose Luckin, Fred Garnett, John Cook </li></ul><ul><li>3. Rethinking the nature of Knowing; </li></ul><ul><li>Celia Hoyles, Richard Cox, Patrick McAndrew </li></ul><ul><li>4. Revisioning knowledge & design; </li></ul><ul><li>David Jennings, Patrick McAndrew, Liz Burd </li></ul><ul><li>Richard Noss on how TEL is answering these questions </li></ul><ul><li>Stuart Edwards on BIS Policy </li></ul>
  3. 3. Richard Noss - TEL <ul><li>How can technology help us innovate? </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation 1: Redesigning learning & teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation 2: Repurposing cultural contexts </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation 3: Rethinking the nature of knowing </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation 4: Revisioning knowledge & design </li></ul>
  4. 4. Redesigning learning & teaching <ul><li>It’s about Practitioners, Intelligent Tools & Apps </li></ul><ul><li>Nigel; Digital Practitioner research project </li></ul><ul><li>Steve; Intelligent Tools in the hands of Practitioners </li></ul><ul><li>Josh; Flexible use of Apps and Android </li></ul>
  5. 5. Nigel Ecclesfield - LSIS <ul><li>The Arrival of the Digital Practitioner? </li></ul><ul><li>“ learning with technology arises from the context of learner needs and draws on the use of web and mobile technologies both inside and outside institutional frameworks” </li></ul>
  6. 6. Steve Ryan - LSE <ul><li>And more Informal learning processes… </li></ul><ul><li>Changing learning and teaching means rethinking practice with the use of intelligent tools deployed with greater awareness by practitioners </li></ul>
  7. 7. Josh Underwood – LKL <ul><li>& we can make the most of consumer products </li></ul><ul><li>Android Market & the App Store point towards more agile models for personal and collaborative participation in design by bringing together product presentation, user ratings, social recommendations, feature requests, bug reports, other feedback, designer responses, related apps, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>In a more open future we might also expect links to user-generated re-designs </li></ul>
  8. 8. Repurposing Cultural Contexts <ul><li>But it’s not just learning & teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Rose; Redesigning Learning Contexts </li></ul><ul><li>Fred; Ambient Learning City </li></ul><ul><li>John; Social Informality in the Workplace </li></ul>
  9. 9. Rose Luckin - LKL <ul><li>And it’s not even just the institutions… </li></ul><ul><li>Emerging technology, such as social media, augmented reality and virtual worlds make it technically possible for learners to create and share multi-media and multi-sensory representations of their experiences and understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>These representations offer learners new opportunities to communicate their personal perspective and teachers new ways to inquire into student learning </li></ul>
  10. 10. Fred Garnett - LKL <ul><li>Out here in the streets... </li></ul><ul><li>New contexts need new metaphors , new relationships, new partnerships </li></ul><ul><li>And new processes of participation using social media; we've developed &quot; Aggregate then Curate &quot; </li></ul>
  11. 11. John Cook - London Met <ul><li>And in the workplace… </li></ul><ul><li>situated workplace learning, both formal and informal, is being given the same priority as motorways by the EC, which is why Horizon 2020 is getting €80 billion. </li></ul><ul><li>We need ‘Facebook for the workplace’ </li></ul><ul><li>Challenges for TEL are the need to address impact and scale </li></ul>
  12. 12. Rethink the Nature of Knowing <ul><li>New technology-enabled processes changing how we come to understand </li></ul><ul><li>Celia; rethinking Mathematics </li></ul><ul><li>Richard Cox; developing heterogeneous reasoning </li></ul><ul><li>Patrick; building on the affordances of being 'Open' </li></ul>
  13. 13. Celia Hoyles - IoE <ul><li>Through evidenced-based design… </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can open access to knowledge in ways previously impossible through, for example, dynamic and graphical tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Our recent &quot;MiGen” research project allowed learners to engage with some difficult ideas in mathematics by combining such tools with state-of-the-art pedagogy augmented by Artificial Intelligence techniques </li></ul>
  14. 14. Richard Cox - Edinburgh <ul><li>And it’s not just the basics … </li></ul><ul><li>Experienced clinicians diagnose using several reasoning modes (deductive, case-based,..) but health science students lack a case-base so must reason only hypothetico-deductively. </li></ul><ul><li>PATSy ( - an interactive virtual patient database - provides students with on-demand case-based reasoning practice. Enables students to become more heterogeneous reasoners. Students also learn vicariously from others </li></ul>
  15. 15. Patrick McAndrew - Open <ul><li>To everyone using new technology… </li></ul><ul><li>The way in which people are relying on 'google knowledge' -search can also bring together people with very specialised interests. </li></ul><ul><li>The process of making technology ‘open’ changes many processes we take for granted </li></ul>
  16. 16. Revision Knowledge & Design <ul><li>Which means that we can broaden the questions that we address </li></ul><ul><li>David; technology is society made durable </li></ul><ul><li>Patrick; identifying new patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Liz; seamless integration of technology innovation </li></ul>
  17. 17. David Jennings - Everything <ul><li>not just institutionalised knowledge… </li></ul><ul><li>“ Technology is society made durable,” said Bruno Latour. That used to mean “made rigid and hard to change”. </li></ul><ul><li>With open, interconnected technology platforms, we can if we want to make society fluid, flexible and agile without losing durability (other than for hidebound institutions), and with more resilience </li></ul>
  18. 18. Patrick McAndrew - Open <ul><li>To everyone using new technology… </li></ul><ul><li>Design approaches for learning in the open are as much about patterns for learning in the open, as changing content itself. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology is as much about pattern design as new tools and resources </li></ul>
  19. 19. Liz Burd - Durham <ul><li>into a space we never dreamed we would be </li></ul><ul><li>Good technology innovation should seamlessly integrate into the work environment </li></ul><ul><li>Research into pervasive technologies must facilitate a process whereby those that engage with a new technology can adopt a scaffolded approach to its integration in its work practices </li></ul><ul><li>Celia; through &quot;Evidenced-based design&quot; </li></ul>
  20. 20. Technology Innovation <ul><li>Our four big ideas on technology innovation require; </li></ul><ul><li>1. New skills; power tools for teachers </li></ul><ul><li>2. New relationships; in context, aggregate then curate social media </li></ul><ul><li>3. New tools; Apps, Open, Frameworks </li></ul><ul><li>4. New patterns in Society; not technology made durable, but adaptive & agile </li></ul>
