My keynote at NKUL: Norway's National conference on the use of ICT in education and learning
It is soooooo exciting to go to Trondheim, Norway in May 2018! More than 1300 teachers and school leaders from all over Norway are expected to join the conference that focus on the use of ICT in education and learning. Woohoo! And I do one of the three keynote speeches!
Teaching and Learning in CrossActionSpaces
Absract: As web-enabled mobile technologies become increasingly integrated into formal learning environments, a new kind of classroom emerge: CrossActionSpaces. These spaces can be characterized as informal-in-formal spaces in which learning takes place across traditional boundaries, for example, bridging schools, community events, and even connecting to students in higher education. The term of CrossActionSpaces provides a ‘new’ view on learning from the perspective of social sciences, and emphasizes a change of human action embraces new forms of teacher and student activities: from pure interaction into crossaction. From this perspective, digital technology in more than just a tool, it shapes digital communication and learner interaction spaces. Under these new conditions of 1:1 tablet classrooms the questions are: how to design for learning in CrossActionSpaces, what role plays teaching, and how to connect teaching to learning? In this keynote, Isa Jahnke presents the framework of Digital Didactical Designs (DDD) which can be applied to study, evaluate and reflect on educational practices toward deep and meaningful learning expeditions in schools. Teacher and students become co-designers of learning. In her presentation, Isa Jahnke will provide examples from 1:1 tablet classrooms.
Isa Jahnke was project leader of “Design för digital didaktik?” funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) in which the team studied 1:1 tablet classrooms in Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Isa also had the opportunity to visit schools in Oslo. She will present results from these studies which are published in different journals, for example, in an Open Access article: https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.compedu.2017.05.006
