Self-Organised Learning Environment (SOLEs) in an English School : an example of transformative pedagogy?

Self-Organised Learning Environment (SOLEs) in an English School : an example of transformative pedagogy? | #transtech | Scoop.it

The SOLE concept, although flexible, has the potential to offer a divergent, radical transformative pedagogy. This sits somewhat uncomfortably alongside more convergent approaches which position the learner as subservient to the curriculum, with the task of merely mastering subject matter prescribed by the teacher. However, what is notable from this analysis is that transformative pedagogy seems to be positioned alongside, rather than in conflict with, the dominant educational framework.

21st Cent. Learners's curator insight, November 3, 2013 5:40 AM

I'm torn by this. I'm sure that children come back with lots of information from the net, but how well is this translated into deeper understandings? Skillfully facilitated plenaries must be crucial.  Maybe a juxtaposition of this with Hattie's findings on the key features of effective teaching would be interesting?  I'd love to see SOLEs in action.

Lots of very interesting comments, the trends gated by acceptance, and use within the educational community and the " permission" or purchases within the schools.
Laura Starace's comment, June 3, 2013 3:22 AM
I am also surprised 15% have no interests in using whiteboards though, not all schools have the chance or "permission" as already mentioned to use it or implement it

Play and Learn Islands

Play and Learn Islands | #transtech | Scoop.it

One of the winners of the 2012 Bright Ideas Harvard University:

"Babies and young children learn through play. It is their source for information about the world. As part of the the Rancho Cucamonga [CA] Library’s mission to foster life-long learning, we now offer opportunities for young children to play while building skills for learning and literacy in all stages of life.

In the spring of 2010, we welcomed four Play and Learn Islands™ to the libraries, providing a new and unique way to bring play and learning to the youngest members of our community."
