VITTA abstract for 2012 conference – Creative learning environments promote creative thinking & inspiring learning
All students have knowledge, that their experiences have given them, and valuing this knowledge can be a difficult task within a school curriculum. Venturing beyond the walls of the classroom, to combine online social media, Web 2.0 and face-to-face teaching, can help to support students’ strengths and abilities while providing them with opportunities to create, publish and be valued resources for their peers. This PhD classroom action research study created dynamic online environments where students were faced with a wide range of tools which encouraged them to think, create and share their knowledge. Multimodal methods of learning were at their fingertips and new literacies became part of the day-to-day learning cycle.
