Transcript of Copy of Campfires, Caves and Waterholes

Nair and Fielding Campfires, Caves
& waterholes Ewan Mcintosh What's it all about? The teaching and learning that takes place now is not the same as when most of our NZ classrooms were built.

The model of teaching has been transformed.

Our "Sage on the stage" methods have changes to "Guide on the side" - However, according to many theorists on classroom spaces, classrooms would struggle to facilitate this new pedagogy fully... A little extra
Sir Ken Robinson What might 21st Century Learners need? New Zealand Curriculum We need to allow learners to be

lifelong learners
actively involved

Teach and Practice key competencies that set children up for life. So...? Are there ways
can we modify our classroom environment to ENHANCE these
21st Century
needs? Secret Spaces Those places to work alone or in pairs....

To be reflective...

traditionally your desk, but
could be......... Group Spaces For those times students need to be together... large or small....social...flexible...The "just in time spaces"

for: collaborative, co-operative learning, discussions, planning, brainstorming, sharing...... What if our furniture was flexible and moveable, or could change purpose so it matched what we were learning?

add that to the maths corner, reading corners, sofas, desks, online spaces....... Watching Spaces Participation Spaces Performing Spaces Publishing Spaces Data Spaces traditional watching might include the looking at the whiteboard or towards front of class......
How about......different points of focus each day, old tv's and video equipment, dvd players, visual aids for topics...... This is where "theory becomes practice"

children need to participate to learn......Could be ANYWHERE..... Can we provide an environment that encourages active participation by all?

One that stimulates and motivates?

Maybe by creating interesting spaces we can....? 'If you want students to learn it might be a good idea to connect them to what they're already good at........." Prakesh Nair CAMPFIRES Watering hole THE SPACES WHERE THE CLASS/GROUP LISTENS TO OTHERS..... Focus Relaxed Interested in person talking Manage self thinking Respect Meeting areas for students.
Small group collaboration and discussion Cooperation Collaboration participating and contributing relating to others Discusion CAVES THE QUIET SPACES FOR REFLECTIVE LEARNING, READING, INDIVIDUAL, CREATIVE FLOW http://www.edtalks.org/video/creating-learning-spaces#.US60EfWbx8w Now what??? Where is my brain
at now.....? No substantial empirical evidence yet produced
that it raises makes a drastic improvement to
achievement levels......


Those achievement levels are measured against
the traditional criteria of education......

Perhaps 21st century pedagogy seems to be at
odds with itself.....? HOW CAN WE TEACH THESE? Provide contexts to experience and practice them........

Make everyday in the classroom an opportunity ......

create an environment where these skills are necessary to learn...... Idealistic? unrealistic? Challenging? Possible? http://edtalks.org/video/collaborative-teaching-traditional-environment#.UVT9n6uH5Xc http://edtalks.org/video/modern-learning-environments-hingaia-peninsula-school#.UVT_J6uH5Xc http://edtalks.org/video/chris-bradbeer-learning-spaces#.UVUDyKuH5Xc Teachers also need to think about their classes different learning styles and intelligences.......I believe that thinking about our learning environment can provide opportunities for students to identify what works best for them Nikki Joshi Those areas where we can watch the drama, musical items, oral performances, dance....imagine if our classroom furniture was flexible and we could make a stage right there in the class. Play can happen anywhere - not just in playgrounds! http://notosh.com/ Ewan McIntoshis the CEO of NoTosh, a learning design company. Ewan is also a well-known, keynote speaker around the world. Listen to Ewan talk about his
ideas about spaces on Vimeo Exploring ways our classroom space can enhance 21st century learning Examples in action from NZ schools - adapting classrooms and new build schools... Click hyoerlinks to view video links Provide children with opportunities to be something they are not.... Blog, flickr, tap into group spaces
twitter wall - live updates......
School can be the community's best neighbour- design a space so it's used by everyone in community always This is probably the hardest......how could real time data actually improve the space?
An example is Gullane primary school - producing their own energy - but it can only happen if that data has an input at every point of the school day. http://www.solarwindapplications.com/casestudy/eco-school-gullane-primary/ Like Ewan Mcintosh, Feilding and Nair believe in different modalities of learning, and design new schools with this in mind...
