These posts were prompted by a blog written by Daniel Christian on emerging trends of new pedagogy. He says: "An increased use of technology not only to deliver teaching, but also to support and assist students and to provide new forms of student assessment."

Learning spaces of the third kind

Education is co-constructed, and the tools and technologies provide the scaffolding to support the learning. eXSPace will be a place we can try out new ideas, new pedagogies, new tools. The first kind of space was highly organised.

Tested to distraction

Learning with e's

For the current UK government, testing is not there to support better learning. They are forced to teach to the test , which detracts from good pedagogy and also leads to higher stress and anxiety levels, not only for the teachers themselves, but also for many of their students.

Power sharing

In my last post I discussed Daniel S Christian''s three trends of an emerging pedagogy. I speculated on whether a new social divide might also emerge as a result of the new pedagogy he outlines. How willing will they be to take on a less central role in this new pedagogy ?

Firstly, it will support collaborative learning in numerous ways, not least because students could use the board for the purposes of brainstorming ideas, organising their projects, mapping out alternative approaches to solving a problem, group mind mapping, and so on.

The numbers game

Learning with e's

But it is a vitally important part of pedagogy. Some would argue that giving grades reflects a product-based pedaogogy, while offering feedback supports a process-based pedagogy. When you mark a student''s work, do you give them a grade or do you offer them advice?

New wine, new wineskins

For example, if new technology is used in the same way as old technology, the pedagogy ''wineskin'' is likely to break. I could go on, giving other examples of how the old paradigm needs to be discarded in favour of new pedagogies and theories, but time and space prevent me.

We must try to engage parents more and make more opportunities for them to develop skills to support their child's education and personal development. Parents are the biggest influence in a child's life and we could support children far more if we provide far more support to parents.

Put less pressure on testing and assessment, more trust in teacher to instil a love of learning and supporting the children’s needs and interests. There is always more that could be done but you need a little self care to make sure you are strong enough to support others.
