Inventing future schools

By Debra Polson


A group of Australian researchers and designers have been working on ways to imagine, demonstrate and accelerate the use of ICT that extend learning relationships and environments to include the classroom, home and local community. These learning projects aim to transform how students identify and interact with learning, subject areas, teachers, other students, family, organisations and more broadly how learning tools can create connections that permeate students' life worlds now and in the future.---------- \ud It is our intention that such demonstrators must\ud - Be simple, flexible, scalable and adaptive\ud - Result in increased confidence in the use of ICT for both students and teachers\ud - Offer opportunities for personalized learning\ud - Promote new and effective learning partnerships between students, teachers and families.\ud - Extend the learning experience to include other environments both local and virtual.\ud - Inspire further innovation\ud - Provide solutions to current limitations---------- \ud \ud Presenting Innovation in Practice\ud - Innovative ICT projects currently being used by students in schools, at home and in the community\ud - Stories of use from teacher, student, and other stakeholder perspectives\ud - Lessons learnt so far: a design perspective\ud - Surprising and inspiring opportunitie
