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. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

LMS stands for Learning Management System. Its name is very helpful in understanding what it is: a system which enables educators and trainers to manage student learning. The first item in the above list (on-demand content) is a key feature of a learning management system.

Corporate Training Trends – Sharing experiences, Shared Learning

G-Cube

There is no doubt that Corporate Learning has a strong social element to it. Learning occurs through social interactions across conference tables, in cubicles, over coffee breaks and at the water cooler. The power and reach of social interactions for learning cannot be overlooked, but the big question is: Is there a way to structure it better to enhance the learning experience? If they find a shared ground, only then will the actual learning take place.

Are Innovation and Education a Perfect Couple or a Dangerous Match?

mLevel

The question: “Is all this innovation a good fit for educators and learning professionals alike… or a dangerous dance partner? ”. For many years this has not been a problem as the technology community has generally ignored the learning space. At first I wasn’t ready to budge, but as I spent more time thinking about it I realized I was focusing on the little picture vs the big one which enabled me to find happiness in the outcome and led to an apology on my behalf.

I want to suggest it’s better if someone higher up sees that tying the elements together into a coherent system is the larger picture. You don’t just want the individual tactics, but you want to see them as steps towards the larger picture. That is, folks aren’t deliberately setting aside monies to fund some experimentation around learning.

It does matter whether you’re talking performance support or spaced learning, but small is good. Spaced learning yes, but reactivation – reconceptualization, recontextualization, and reapplication – not content dump and knowledge test. Look, the real mobile opportunity is about performance support and contextualized learning. Spaced learning is good (though not unique to mobile).

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.
