Working space as learning space

Learning with 'e's

Graham Attwell over at Pontydysgu (Bridge to Learning) has challenged me to take five pictures that depict my working space as a learning space. For me, my working space has always been my learning space (well, ever since I became involved in education anyway). I get paid to teach and research at Plymouth University , but this all comes about through my own personal learning. Unported License.

The news created a small stir on social media, with several educators opining about what they thought of lecture theatres, their place in universities, technology, and teaching and learning in general. It seems that the subject of the article, the University of Northampton (one of the newest universities in the UK) has decided to do away with their traditional raked lecture theatres, and replace them with more open, flat, flexible spaces where teaching can be conducted.

#LearningIs creative

Learning with 'e's

Learning can certainly be creative, if the conditions are right. Firstly, creative learning requires active engagement. There is a place for the latter, but if teachers wish their students to go the extra mile, they need to directly involve them in learning. This means learning spaces where just about anything is possible, where students are kept guessing, and where they are offered the chance to discover for themselves. Unported License.

Teach less, learn more

Learning with e's

I have now had some time to reflect on this week's Plymouth e-Learning Conference. Looking around the room as they spoke, the audience was all smiles, and many people have stated that it was one of the highlights of the conference for them to listen to groups of such articulate and confident young people showing us oldsters how they used technologies to enhance their own learning in the classroom. What will we learn from this? Unported License.

#LearningIs lifelong

Learning with 'e's

As I remarked in my previous #LearningIs post, learning never stops. Often we don't even realise we are learning, but we are constantly being exposed to new information, and if we pay attention, we are likely to internalise that information in some way. If you had told me during my school years that learning didn't stop when I left school, I would have been horrified. Any notion of additional learning after my schools years would have been anathema to me.

Learning in round spaces

Learning with 'e's

Situating learning in rectangular spaces naturally promotes some forms of pedagogy at the expense of others. It is of course possible in traditional classrooms to create opportunities for learning to be driven by learners, where collaborative and cooperative learning can be facilitated, and where students can move around the room as they investigate and experiment, create and discuss. So what happens when we change the shape of the learning space?

His alternative to funnels was to establish 'learning webs' where students could share their expertise within their communities and learn from each other as the need arose, and as their interests drove them. For Illich, informal learning was more appropriately situated than formal learning, and therefore more relevant for lifelong learning.

How it can be applied in education Many teachers know that learning spaces should be designed to optimise learning. If the classroom is cold or noisy, or the students are uncomfortable, or if they feel unsafe, they will be distracted and will concentrate less on their learning.

and was it really worth all those hours learning how to conjugate amo, amas, amat simply to be able to one day identify a strange fish, when all you need to do in the digital mobile age is Google it? How much do children now need to learn in school that is knowledge based? We call this type of learning declarative knowledge, because it is 'knowing that' - in other words, the learning of facts.
