A Platform for Future Learning

Zaal 1

The past year has seen profound turmoil, but the challenges of the pandemic have also opened new possibilities for teaching and learning. Whether learners are scattered on screens or gathered together in a classroom, we can design learning experiences that build a platform on which they can explore, experiment, create, and learn. Using the Follow/Tinker/Make/Share (FTMS) Framework, teachers can create a learning experience that emphasises participation and creation rather than observation, inviting learners to adapt and personalise assignments and projects to make learning more engaging and lasting. This brief talk will highlight recent research and outline a platform structure that can support learning in many contexts, academic disciplines, and levels of learning.
