Imagine Future Classrooms

The session will invite educators and others interested in education at all levels to reflect on the changing conditions of learning and teaching in media rich society; the last few years we´ve heard a lot about MOOCs, game-based learning and 3D virtual media. But at the heart of everything are pressures and also opportunities for educators to engage in new teaching modes, new ways of narrating a classroom story, new ways of co-creating meaning. Teachers education needs to reflect this more.

  1. Participants will acquire a better understanding of the basic issues, the narrative challenges and societal ramifications of education after Web 2.0: Can we reach nonmobilized / marginalized learner groups through wise use of education technology?
  2. Participants will acquire a deeper understanding of the "multimodal" curatorial skills required in media rich learning. "Flipping the classroom" is one thing. Flipping everything you have learned about being in a classroom is something else.
  3. Participants will be invited to share and reflect on "the future classroom". How can teachers education become more "edupreneurial"? Should it? What is the relevance of gaming, documentary narration and co-creation in problem based learning designs?
