1 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' The callenge of metaphors in primary education 28 august 2010 ATEE Arjan Dieleman

2 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Outcome MTV-research in 16 countries (2007) Youth attached to internet and mobile phone but not interested in the workings of ICT-technology Science and technology is for nerds

3 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' From curious child to an uninterested youngster. What went wrong? The child is curious. He wants to make sense out of things, find out how things work, gain competence and control over himself and his environment, and do what he can see other people doing. He is open, perceptive, and experimental. He does not merely observe the world around him, He does not shut himself off from the strange, complicated world around him, but tastes it, touches it, hefts it, bends it, breaks it. To find out how reality works, he works on it. He is bold. He is not afraid of making mistakes. And he is patient. He can tolerate an extraordinary amount of uncertainty, confusion, ignorance, and suspense... School is not a place that gives much time, or opportunity, or reward, for this kind of thinking and learning (John Holt)

4 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Subjects Which obstacles are there in Dutch science and technology education? What is special about the current technology? How does it change our lifeworld? How do children think about our technologised world? How can metaphors help children’s understanding?

5 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Which obstacles? Little commitment of primary teachers to science and technolgy Science and technology fear and illiteracy Teachers tend to shy away from teaching science and technology

6 Falling back on old-fashioned technology - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

7 Pecularities of contemporary ICT ICT is everywhere. ICT is the dominant technology in the lifeworld of children. The continuing progress of miniturization Integration of seperated technologies in one gadget.

8 ICT is the dominant technology in the lifeworld - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

9 ICT and playing - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

10 Visibility

11 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Disappearing visibility

12 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Miniturization and individualization

13 Small scale-research (24 children) Six groups interviews - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

14 We asked for explanations of old and new technology - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

15 Some examples - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' Sms goes slower than normal calling because you are sending a text to the satellite and first the satellite must read the message before it can send it back. One child gets aware that the satellite can read then all your secrets.

16 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' A child said: Everyone has his own private satellite. That means millions of satellites? …. jeah there are more satellites in the (outer) space than people on earth. A few children doubted it and started a discussion: maybe not everyone but every house or family.

17 - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' About the Alarm clock: There must be a battery. Really……..? Yes it can’t work withoudt a battery.

18 Some examples - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar' About the old (dial) telephone There goes a signal to the satellite and there is a person who turns up the telephonenumber and gives a signal back that there is a call.

19 Results Most children know how they can use new technology but: can’t even give a start of a explanation. They think that old technology works as new technology. Not only children don’t know, but also our teacher students hardly know how it works - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'

20 Need for smart metaphors or analogies Metaphorical thinking is productive in science and technology thinking. We are looking with ICT-experts and teachers for usable metaphors, for example: (Electronic) highway City with administrative centers - Lectoraat 'Pedagogische kwaliteit van de leraar'
