Digital learning futures: Communication and collaboration

  1. 1. Digital learning futures: Communication and collaboration <br />ACT Principals Conference 2011<br />17 August 2011<br />Professor Robert Fitzgerald<br />University of Canberra<br />
  2. 2. Time to rethink<br />The emerging forms of interactive media, information communication technologies and social networking are reshaping almost every aspect of our work and social life<br />These new practices and literacieschallenge our traditional ideas about the form and function of education<br />New opportunities for participation and interactionare arising from virtual communities of interest where users are active content creators re-mixing, re-purposing and re-distributing content<br />Technology is quite clearly much more than just a tool but can be an evocative object to think with and an engine of social and cultural change <br />2<br />
  3. 3. Waves of change<br />Source: Findlay, J. (2008). Learning as a game: exploring cultural differences between teachers and learners using a team learning system, PhD thesis, School of Economics and Information Systems, University of Wollongong.<br />3<br />

ICT & The Goldilocks Principle (Just right)<br />Index of ICT Internet/entertainment use<br />Index of ICT program/software use<br />Students reporting a moderate use of computers to perform a range of tasks<br />Source: OECD (2005) Are students ready for a technology-rich world?

  7. 7. “Quick, turn something on…I’m starting to think”<br />Homer Simpson<br />7<br />
  8. 8. We need imaginative pedagogy & design<br />It is “flexible purposing” that characterizes imaginative pedagogy, with its openness to discovery unpredictability and surprise (Eisner, 2009, p.8). Process is valued over outcomes<br />Teachers help students to “work at the edge of incompetence” and to view their work as “temporary experimental accomplishments” (Eisner, 2003, p.379)<br />“Flexible purposing is opportunistic; it capitalizes on the emergent features appearing within a field of relationships. It is not rigidly attached to predefined aims when the possibility of better ones emerges” [Dewey (1938) quoted in Eisner, 2003, p.378]<br />8<br />

  12. 12. INSPIRE<br />INSPIRE will focus on innovative, good practice pedagogy that utilises ICT to enhance student learning outcomes<br />Our research will inform a range of professional learning programs for both pre service and practising teachers <br />Research themes will be further developed in conjunction with ACTDET but will include: <br />development of virtual learning environments and mobile learning application<br />development of frameworks to support the pedagogical applications of ICT (e.g. TPACK)<br />application of ICT to support design thinking and educational design<br />the use of ICT to support collaborative knowledge building in professional learning and educational leadership<br />work on mobile learning, designing agile learning spaces and augmented reality applications (New grant recently awarded – ARStudio)<br />12<br />
