Elearning Pedagogy and Furniture

Written by David on November 7th, 2011.      0 comments

I came across a post on the Upside Down Education blog today that discusses the effect that furniture can have upon elearning pedagogy in a classroom http://upsidedown.edublogs.org/2011/11/06/learning-spaces/ In my Building a 5th Wall in Your Classroom  I suggest how this can be done by simply moving furniture around.  The presentation is below:

I was inspired to make this conclusion having seen the excellent presentation by David Jakes who describes how the layout of furniture in a classroom has a direct impact upon the learning that it can facilitate, it is well worth a look. http://www.slideshare.net/djakes/would-you-want-to-learn-here-3015221


Tales of Things Revisited

Written by David on November 7th, 2011.      0 comments


I read a post this morning that reminded me do a project I started last year. Mark Brumley has just posted about Tales of Things http://www.markbrumley.com/2011/11/05/tales-of-things-use-qr-codes-in-education/ Tales of Things is a good site and it helps to create, via a QR code, digital provenance for everyday artifacts.

Last year I started a collaborative animation project that was assigned a QR code from Talesmof Things. Now it is time to market this idea again. The post can be seen here and it would be great to see how we could develop the animation and eve see if we could create a storyboard to start with. All contributions accepted, so please get your students to have a go at this one. The original post is here: http://dakinane.com/blog/2010/10/25/qr-codes-and-collaboration-online/
