Vocational Dreams to Career Reality: Technology Enhanced Learning for Everyday Connectivity and Practice

Dr. Niki Lambropoulos
Keynote @17/06/2015
http://voctelconference.eu/

London South Bank University & Global Operations Division, London, UK

A great number of jobs are becoming obsolete these days; our era is shifting from the Industrial to the Information, Collaboration and Creativity one. Knowledge, skills, competencies and associated tools within Communities of Practice (CoPs) are constantly altering. In the rise of such new world, new dreams and visions are needed to be manifested creating new CoPs and careers that sometimes can be entirely unpredictable. This rapid information expansion, worldwide collaboration and promptly emerging new technologies, are raising demands in the everyday working ecosystems. Consequently, they impact and alter the Vocational Education and Training (VET) pedagogical approaches and learning possibilities. Based upon the inevitable uncertainty, best practices are presented that have been intelligently employed for vocational technology enhanced learning within in situ connected working environments. Furthermore, new methods, tools and techniques are proposed to embrace and enhance collaborative creativity implemented in diverse and intersected informal and formal learning and working locations. Such frameworks and easy-to-use tools have the potential to adjust and bridge previous knowledge and experiences with the new working demands. In this way, knowledge, skills and competencies can be transformed and transmitted within unified learning and working ecosystems for everyday ubiquitous connectivity and practice.

  18. 18. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens About Communities… • Community: a group of people who consciously share a sense of belonging anchored in common interests and enhanced by social interactions. • Online community: an online social aggregation that emerges when enough people carry on those public discussions long enough to form relationships. Members’ social interactions are facilitated by ICTs. • Community of Practice (CoP): a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. • Collaborative e-Learning Community (CeLC): a social aggregation that emerges in online courses when enough people carry on progressive dialogues for the purpose of learning.

  20. 20. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens About Social Networks • Social Network: a social structure made up of a set of actors (such as individuals or organizations) and the dyadic ties between these actors (Wasserman & Faust, 1994). Ties can be based on: friendship, common interests, mutual friends, family members, business, dislikes etc. • Social Network Platform: an other online service focusing on building and creating networks. • We are: Friends (Facebook), followers (Twitter), readers (Blog), subscribers (YouTube) etc.

  27. 27. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens Community Evolution 1. Legitimate Peripheral Participation (LPP): The process of social learning that occurs in Communities of Practice containing different levels of participation en route for members’ engagement and practice 2. Participation involves the use of tools: Artefacts used within a cultural practice carry a substantial portion of that practice's heritage. Thus, understanding the technology of practice is a way to connect with the history of practice and participate more directly in its cultural life (Lave & Wenger, 1991)

  40. 40. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens DUAL VocTEL • Three different learning contexts – Workplace, vocational school & inter-company courses • Learners learn & experience different forms of theory & practice in these contexts – Problem 1: Knowledge is often situated in one of these contexts and does not get used in the other context – Problem 2: The multi-context approach often leads to disconnected, inert, isolated and fragmented knowledge that cannot be applied to solve real problems
  41. 41. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens DUAL-T • Voc dual contexts: workplace and school – Identify specific needs of dual TEL training – Encounter multiple instances of the "skills gap", that is situations where the apprentices do not have the opportunity to practice at their workplace the skills that have been defined as objectives by the vocational training system • Technologies as "bridges" over the skills gap – Improve school effectiveness by connecting workplace experience to classroom reflective activities. – Support activities that target key cognitive skills (self-regulation, reflection and abstraction) without disconnecting these skills from the professional context. • Erfahrraum Model (German words "experience" and "space") – Augment co-present educational interactions – Enable teachers to conduct rich learning activities – Create a shared space to facilitate learning through reflection on experiences made in different contexts DUAL-T is a Leading House of the Swiss Federal Office for Professional Education and Technology. The Leading House is chaired by Prof. Pierre Dillenbourg and coordinated by Dr. Beat Schwendimann.

  47. 47. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens REALTO • Entries in a chronological timeline • Each entry is enhanced with a title, description, tags, and comments. Photos can be annotated to highlight important features • Time for reflection is often limited in the workplace. Learners quickly capture experiences and use them for later reflection activities • Formal learning journal entries. Learning journal entries can be shared with supervisors who evaluate and validate the documents • Bridge the gap between school and workplace learning contexts – From the school to workplace: understand theory and relate it to specific examples of workplace experiences. – From the workplace to school: • Experiences made in the workplace can be used for reflective activities to build connections to knowledge learned in school. • Teachers can assign activities, e.g. collect photos in the workplace about a certain topic to be discussed later in school. • Learner generated entries are used as practical examples to illustrate abstract concepts.

  65. 65. 17-18/06/2015 Crowne Plaza Athens Brain/Cognitive Plasticity • Brain/Cognitive Plasticity is the ability to learn and improve cognitive skills, like learning to solve problems or when we remember any detail or event. • Plasticity is the ability of the brain to remodel the connections between neurons. It is on the basis of the processes of memory and learning, but sometimes intervenes to offset the effects of brain injuries establishing new networks. • These local changes in brain structure depend on the environment and allow the brain to adapt.
