In class: View the video 'If students designed schools' and discuss the merits and pitfalls of these learning model presented in the video.
Today was pretty much a hands on session where we had 3 hours to rotate through stations to upskill in Maker Culture, 3D Modelling and Innovative learning spaces. The requirement today was to do a minimum of 3 stations.
"There is a lot of interest in learning through making, focused on the social construction of artefacts. While this might appear to echo earlier formal apprenticeship models of learning, it is good to know that the emerging ‘maker culture’ especially emphasises informal, networked, peer-led, and shared learning motivated by fun and self-fulfilment."
Task:During the Station work / In-Class flipping choose at least one of the Digital and Collaborative learning related stations (2, 4 and 6)
2. Discuss & Meme Goal: Understand what innovative learning spaces are
4. Design & 3D Model: Rehearse a universal design and prototyping mindset
6.View & Video Goal: Plan your own future digital learning environments for the last 16 weeks.
"Innovative classrooms reflect new ways of teaching and learning and they remove the focus from a teacher led environment to a space where teachers and learners collaborate.
~ "Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning natural results." - John Dewey
