Changing Learning Spaces

The use of technology in teaching has led to the change of learning spaces in schools. The challenge of online education requires a reliance on technology use in teaching and learning. Through semi-structured interviews with Chinese educators and high school students Ms Wang has researched the positive attitudes towards online classes such as self-paced learning, protection from peer pressure and positive self-esteem alongside the negative attitudes, including low levels of efficiency, diminishing engagement and challenges of collaboration and discussion. In this workshop, participants will discuss the use of technology and its potential effects in different schools and contexts.

Putting Students in the Driver's Seat

In this workshop participants will first take the role of a student to experience what it is like to drive your own learning and what the guidance feels like from the student perspective. Then, switching roles and pulling back the “classroom curtain”, you will dive into the teacher’s point of view to see structures and techniques for facilitating student-directed learning. Join us to reignite the excitement in your classroom by putting students in the driver’s seat of their own learning!
