Preparing for 1:1 Learning Environment – A Pedagogical View

Our guest presenter for “Preparing for a 1:1 Learning Environment – a Pedagogical View” was Helen Otway, Assistant Principal of Manor Lakes  P-12/Specialist School. Helen generously shared the pedagogy surrounding their creation of the learning environments at their new school. Part of this environment was a laptop program for year 7s in 2009 which has now continued into a program for years 7 and 8 this year. Her professional presentation and engaging manner captured many complimentary remarks.

Our audience came from:  

  1. Australia, USA, Hong Kong, Singapore and India.
  2. Many were prep to year 12 educators, including our global participants
  3. Teachers, educationalists, specialists, people on leave, retirees!

Comment of the session! One of our US participants set her alarm to get up in the early hours of the morning and her closing comment was :- “Thanks tons! Was definitely worth getting up in the middle of the night” The global conversation is extremely stimulating and it is fantastic to share and compare our learning environments.

Highlights

  • Helen speaking about the learning environments they wanted to create, how they captured those environments and how they connected with their community to ensure they involved them.
  • The amazing discussion between the global participants comparing learning environments in each country.

Interesting questions:

  • Peggy George: Are you using the transformative guidelines for fair use?
  • Andrew Chiu 1: Has going 1-to-1 placed pressure / started a direction away from age-level groupings (grade levels) and more towards ability groupings (classes / courses with different age groups)?
