NAVCON '04 NZ

I was invited to speak at this New Zealand and Australia conference on ICT in education. My title was 'Values and principles to drive e-learning'. I also supported Carole Chapman run a workshop on 'Physical Design of Learning Spaces' and I ran a pre-conference workshop with colleagues on webcasting titled 'Unleash your creativity'.

Abstract for 'Values and principles to drive e-learning'

There is a tendency to take an over-pragmatic view of what works with computers and to sustain practices and decisions justified on past success and simply 'overlay' technological solutions. This is often based on old-fashioned pedagogy, early designs of software and a social, cultural and technological context, all of which have moved on. To develop future pedagogies and software and respond to new contexts demands more substantial foundations. This session examines the values and principles which should drive e-learning.

Abstract for 'Physical design of learning spaces - workshop'

The purpose of this workshop is to explore why the design of school buildings matters and consider how it can affect the lives of pupils, staff and other school users. The workshop will provide the space and time for participants to be actively involved in exploring design decisions.

A starting point for the workshop will be an examination of clear predictions about future pedagogues and an opportunity to examine the pedagogical and technological implications of radical school designs through a brief presentation and discussions.

Following this a hands-on workshop will enable participants to work in small groups to develop and examine a range of designs, from single classroom 'makeovers' to whole school designs.  This activity will act as stimulus for discussion.

Lessons learnt from the workshop will then be applied to a whole school context in a ‘roundup’ session.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
