Learning for Today: The Interaction between Pedagogy, Learning Spaces and Technology
Selinger, Michelle
Educational Facility Planner, v45 n1-2 p14-17 2011
A new pedagogy is emerging, placing students at the centre of the learning process and encouraging teachers to draw from a larger repertoire of strategies and skills to lead interdisciplinary and project-based work. The best learning is authentic--engaging students in their own learning in practical and real-life contexts that demonstrate the value and validity of the skills and knowledge they gain. The introduction of technology has helped to fuel this new pedagogy and it has not only transformed the ways in which learners and teachers interact, it has also caused a rethink in the way that learning spaces are designed. A vision of technology-enabled education is grounded first and foremost in an education model that articulates clear objectives to prepare learners effectively for life, learning and work in the 21st century.
