When Sep 04, 2001
Where Clacton

Outline of the presentation:

How do you learn with IT?

  • What does it matter? 
    - jobs, higher education, coping with life
  • How does anyone believe you? 
    - examinations, experience, portfolio - communication!
  • How do you ensure you can convince them? 
    - prepare well, understand not just parrot
  • How does learning work anyway? 
    - expression / evaluation loop

What does this mean for you and IT?

  • Use IT to help you 'take risks' with ideas.
    - you can always change them easily
  • Use IT to help you brainstorm. 
    - you can tidy up later without having to retype
    - the screen helps your short term memory
  • Use IT to create other ways and mixed ways of communicating effectively.
    - artwork, diagrams, videos, sounds 
    - but remember people have to be able to view/hear them
  • Use IT to help you achieve a high quality of finish.
    - but use design as well as fonts
  • Use all of these to improve what you can do with paper & pencil.

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
