The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces

The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces | ICT in a language classroom | Scoop.it

Classrooms should be spaces that students don’t want to leave.  Some communities are still hesitant about these futuristic looking learning spaces and have resorted to older, traditional physical spaces. Hopefully, they will begin to embrace changes to better prepare students and move them in the 21st century global economy.

While I do not ascribe to everything mentioned in this post, there is much to commend it.

Schools and the learning spaces within them should be engaging and attractive places for children in which to learn. Outside of their home, school is where they spend a significant portion of their lives.

To construct better learning environments we need to deconstruct our traditional view of the classroom.

The Scary Truth About What Technology Is Really Doing To Kids

The Scary Truth About What Technology Is Really Doing To Kids | ICT in a language classroom | Scoop.it

"If it seems like your kids are constantly plugged in, tapping away on their iPhones, obsessively gaming and SnapChatting way more than they're actually ... chat-chatting -- well, that's because they are. It's estimated that children ages 8 to 18 spend an average of seven hours a day behind screens; teens send an average of 3,417 text messages each month; and 97 percent of adolescents have at least one electronic device in their bedrooms."

10 reasons to use games in language teaching | Teach them English | ICT in a language classroom | Scoop.it
While I would never suggest turning all of your classes into one long ‘gamesfest’, I will always argue that a good game can be not only justified, but should be regarded as an important part of your teaching repertoire.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

6 Blended Learning Models & Platforms

 

Imagine a classroom where the students have the ability to spend their class time collaborating with other students, receiving additional support from the teacher, or working on hands on projects with their peers. A hands-on enriched classroom is possible with blended learning.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 26, 2014 4:19 AM

Blended learning offers many opportunities for both the teacher and the student that a traditional brick and mortar classroom may not. With the increasing demands of state standards and busy school days, blended learning permits students to learn a portion of the academic content at home and gives teachers the ability to engage students in a richer, deeper, and more meaningful context in the classroom.

Blended learning enables the teacher to become more of a participant in student learning and can help facilitate student mastery of content with enriching learning activities introduced and completed when the class meets face to face.

Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | ICT in a language classroom | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur.

Great post that highlights how educators, not just students, can be guilty of being stuck in a fixed mindset and how to revert your thinking back to one of a growth mindset.

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable | Edudemic

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable | Edudemic | ICT in a language classroom | Scoop.it

This may sound like a lofty title, but it’s not wrong. There’s an impressive presentation making the rounds dubbed “Mobile is eating the World” by Benedict Evans. In the presentation, Evans shows some staggering charts, interesting factoids, and all the other statistics you’d expect with a title so grand. It makes me think about mobile learning, mobile browsing, and mobile everything.

 

But the real story here is about education. It’s about how we’re all going to be learning in the next few years and generations according to the data in the new presentation.

 

Mobile learning is not only on the rise, it’s inevitable...
