Use of Technology Enabling Learning & Influencing/Impacting Design: Janet Hayward OBE, Cadoxton Primary School & Hannah Jones, the-learning-crowd
In this session Janet Hayward OBE, Headteacher at Cadoxton Primary and Hannah Jones, Senior Associate with the-learning-crowd will explore technology for learning. The session will explore how the experience of using technology for learning can have greater impact on when the Design of the building, the settings and layouts of spaces is planned – so that the technology works and so that it can be used effectively and appropriately to support the pedagogical approaches and ethos of the school.
Power and data, selecting the right technology for your needs to choosing the right furniture all have an impact on how teachers and students will adopt the technology – and how together a well planned and IT resourced space can provide students with a deep active learning experience.
Technology & learning environments: Mike Bedford, Hoare Lea
There has been a monumental shift in Digital transformation – fuelled by technological advancement and a monumental and pervasive shift in human-computer interaction – is happening in all aspects of our lives. This has resulted in an explosion of new possibilities emerging in education, allowing richer information exploration, new experimentation with pedagogy, new ‘natural communication’ learning space formats and exciting immersive content interactions.
How humans interact with computers and information is undergoing a monumental shift. Our brain and the way we function, often now depends on the internet and our devices. “Google can tell me anything”, “my device knows my planning, my memories, my health, helps me be creative, relationships are understood and managed by my device”.
Students and faculty alike are coming to learning environments with ever increasing expectation of personalised technology integration. Education will continue to be more personalised, agile and data driven.
We now have the ability to bake intelligent building technologies into the architecture of learning space design. We can allow facilitators to flexibly re-configure the ‘mode’ of a room at the touch of a screen to adapt for open discussion or collaboration, with students easily contributing confidently and being heard, capturing, generating and sharing content. We can produce intelligent data insights into student occupancy and circulation behaviors, integrate intelligence into space and facility booking, and security and BYOD learning communication systems. We can intelligently sense and analyse learning space environmental parameters, specifically exploring the impacts of air quality on cognitive functioning and other environmental conditions.
Should we create technology-driven buildings, or user-centered buildings, supported by technology?
Transforming Learning with Apple Technology: Rob Bruton & Richard Hopkin, St Cyres School
In this session Rob Bruton Assistant Headteacher at St Cyres School and Richard Hopkin Lead Practitioner of Teaching and Learning will explore the use of technology and how this has transformed learning. They realised that technology could facilitate and extend the schools aim to offer truly innovative and effective learning experiences. From 2015, the school provided each student from Year 7 to Year 13 an iPad for use in lessons and at home. All teaching staff have a MacBook Pro and an iPad. Teachers and students exchange work, ideas and feedback using cloud based solutions. Through collaboration features they can work in separate spaces, classrooms and at home. Learning no longer starts when students arrive in school or finishes when they leave. The continued use of technology has had a significant impact on learner’s creativity, independence and collaboration. In an ever-changing digital world, learning spaces in St Cyres are preparing students for the future.
