2 this talk … where we are now – using IT in education what has happened –changes in IT what will happen –the long vision + digressions

3 this talk … where you are now – using IT in education what has happened – changes in IT what will happen - the long vision follows the T model

4 what we teach breadth depth

5 what students learn? breadth depth

6 extension T model breadth depth grounding

7 why T ? texture more engaging! grounding more rigorous mastery more motivating

8 division what does it mean?

9 multiplication 3 x 4 = 12 4 x 3 = 12

10 division 12 / 3 = ? ??? ?

11 building a house length of roof = 5 metres beams in 2 metre sections can cut and join how many sections do I need? 5m 2m 3

12 transporting the beams length of trailer = 5 metres beams in 2 metre sections how many sections can I carry 5m 2m 2

13 lifting the beam length of roof = 5 metres each 2m section weighs 1 tonne can cut and join what does the full beam weigh? 5m 2m 21/221/2 1 tonne

14 division? number of beams to buy? 5 / 2 3 number of beams in trailer? 5 / 2 2 weight of beams? 5 / / 2

15 Reflection where we are now using IT in education

16 Reflection at 2002 IT Master Plan … … lots of computers what to do with them?

17 golden rule of design understand your materials computers content pupils yourself

18 physical things directness of effect –push and it moves locality of effect –here and now visibility of state –small number of relevant parameters

19 whats special about computers? complexity of effect –computation non locality of effect –in space – networks –in time – memory hidden state –large number of invisible variables

20 driving lesson

21 what happened removed external judgement – I didnt know intention allowed personal feedback – she did know enabled play and experiment – not goal directed

22 repeat 3 [forward 50 right 60] LOGO and Papert simple programming language plus turtle draw a triangle?

23 Montessori self correcting materials instant feedback no judgement

24 computers rapid feedback – before bad habits form – e.g. spelling checkers … but not correctors! low judgement …

25 computer personality work at Dundee – questionnaires and interviews – personal questions (medical) electronic versions – simple questionnaires – keyword based (like Elisa) – the more human-like the better – but better than real human

38 four ages of information Age of Proximity Age of Bureaucracy Age of Money –freemarket economies: –exchange of value –exchange of information

39 four ages of information Age of Proximity Age of Bureaucracy Age of Money Age of Information –electronic messages –information objects –challenges power structures –remolds economics

40 digression

41 a brief history of learning a lightning tour through evolutionary time …

42 Genes timescale: 1000s of generations

43 individual learning timescale: within a lifetime depends on memory and imagination

44 parents and packs timescale: across generations depends on co-experience and learning

45 gesture and language timescale: across generations imagination and vicarious experience

46 play timescale: within and across generations imagination and virtual experience

47 last words … technology is changing but people are the same understand technology understand learning
