Three Ways Technology is Changing the Learning Space (Plus One)

Learningtogo

Most of us in the learning profession pride ourselves on being comfortable with technology. Whenever a new tool is available, we’re ready to give it a try, eager to adopt the latest way to help people learn. Or maybe we just get too busy with the day-to-day of writing, designing, developing, delivering, measuring and revising our training programs to find the time and energy to implement all that shiny new technology. But the learning experience is real.

Active learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

Recently I wrote about collaborative learning spaces , and argued that we are entering unfamiliar territory. The boundaries of informal and formal spaces have blurred significantly, as have the boundaries between the real and the virtual. It appears that it no longer matters where learning occurs, as long as it is meaningful. Some might argue that learning that is situated is the most powerful. All of these aspects of learning are active.

Learning spaces

Throughout the programme of initial teacher education, our specialist computing and ICT students are constantly creating blogs, videos and other digital representations of their learning. So here's another batch for you: The question the students had to address on this occasion was: 'How can psychological and pedagogical theories be applied to create effective learning spaces?' Clearly, the word 'space' can be extended to beyond the walls of the traditional classroom.

Reinventing learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

Phone charging station at Stratford Shopping Centre, London I have written extensively about education spaces, architectures for learning , and personal learning environments. I elaborated on these ideas in my recent book Learning with ''e''s like this: If the design of a space is wrong, learning can be constrained or even stifled. Teachers should be the architects of learning spaces (Wheeler, 2015, p 102).

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.

Self organised learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

I only provide them with the conditions in which they can learn." - Albert Einstein The social web is replete with self-organising spaces. Us and an army of similar minded volunteers who love learning, and want to share their knowledge. And that should give all of use some clues as to how to facilitate self-organising learning spaces. Yet many academics and teachers struggle with the concept of self-organised learning. "I never teach my students.

Creative learning spaces

For me, one of the highlights of the Estonian Elearning Conference in Tallinn was listening to Stephen Harris , principal of the Sydney Centre for Innovations in Learning. SCIL is an Australian secondary school that practices teaching and learning within open spaces, where student autonomy and personalisation of learning are top priorities. The Cave: This is a personal learning space where students can be on their own.

Learning spaces of the third kind

Learning with 'e's

The first kind of space was highly organised. In these 'class' rooms, our students gathered, seated in rows, facing toward a single part of the space - the front. Many of these, the blackboard, the projector and the screen, and eventually other new technologies such as television and video, were placed at the front of the room because this was where all the action was. Next came the second kind of space - rooms where people could face in more than one direction.

More fabulous learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

The space in which a child learns is important. If a school gets it wrong, learning can be constrained or even completely stifled. It didn't lead to very good learning outcomes. It's often the simple things that improve the learning environment, and as Stephen Heppell says, better school toilets = better results. Last year I wrote about some fabulous learning spaces I had seen while visiting schools in New Zealand.

Redefining learning spaces

All are invited from any sectors of education and training, and there is an early call for workshop, papers and demonstrations on the theme: The 4th Plymouth e-Learning Conference will examine the theme of e-learning in a time of change, and will challenge notions of traditional boundaries, learning spaces and roles.

Learning spaces and places

Learning with e's

This entire series on technology affordances was started off by a remark I made during the 5th Plymouth e-Learning Conference , and my subsequent blogpost which I called ' Angels in the architecture '. in which I highlighted the fact that affordances are emergent attributes of the design that are based on perceptions, and we must therefore be careful how we select technologies to support learning. Opaque technologies need to become more transparent.

Working from home / location independent working

Technology Enhanced Learning Blog

Note: remote working doesn’t have to mean working from home, it means there is an ability to work in another location that is not your normal/assigned space. I have my work space, as I would in the office. The important thing here is that I have control of what distractions I allow in to my space. We are living and working during incredible times where technology means we can still access our files remotely, contact colleagues in realtime, attend meetings.
