Moving across Physical and Online Spaces: A Case Study in a Blended Primary Classroom
Thibaut, Patricia; Curwood, Jen Scott; Carvalho, Lucila; Simpson, Alyson
Learning, Media and Technology, v40 n4 p458-479 2015
With the introduction of digital tools and online connectivity in primary schools, the shape of teaching and learning is shifting beyond the physical classroom. Drawing on the architecture of productive learning networks framework, we examine the affordances and limitations of an upper primary learning network and focus on how the digital and physical elements involved in set design shape teachers' pedagogical approaches and students' learning processes. The findings suggest that blended spaces support teachers' distributed orchestration of classroom activities across tools and resources while also leveraging students' engagement in reciprocal teaching and collaborative learning.
