  56. 56. When we change the way we communicate, we change society Clay Shirky, Here comes everybody
  57. 57. Part 3: Pedagogical Change
  58. 58. Influences on pedagogical change Explicit outputs of pedagogical change Educator beliefs about pedagogy and technology Belief changes: • Flexibility with learning design, blended learning, • Social media and Web 2.0 • New practices lead to transformation Educator approaches to professional learning Professional learning individual changes: • Self-organising, peer-to-peer mentoring • Personal Learning Network and Professional Learning Community development, cross- pollination • Participatory, collaborative and global • Social and cultural habits • Interaction that leads to collaboration and co- creation Educator conceptual change Essential impacts on conceptual change: • Enablers and Inhibitors • Innovative pedagogies • Collaborative global learning • Curriculum redesign
  59. 59. Learning is now organised around the learner, not the educator
  60. 60. Technology must be the bridge, not the barrier to shifting pedagogy Image: 'forward’ http://www.flickr.com/photos/99771506@N00/3036132944
  61. 61. The change we need ……. • Community building as a prerequisite to learning • Collaboration that leads to co-creation with other learners who are not in the same time and space, • Pedagogical independence and leadership for change within a school/institution @julielindsay | padlet.com/julielindsay/EdTechSA | #edtechsa @EdTechSA
  62. 62. Changing roles…… • The role of the teacher (as ‘Activator’ – Hattie) • The role of the student (as active learner) • The role of the school (as conduit to global collaboration) • The role of the community (as partners in learning) @julielindsay | padlet.com/julielindsay/EdTechSA |#edtechsa @EdTechSA
  63. 63. Research tells us..... Why technology is integrated differently First-order barriers • environmental (hardware and software) • teacher knowledge (for example, about TPACK or SAMR) Second-order barriers • teacher beliefs (Ertmer, 2012; Greenhow, 2009)
  64. 64. ‘.... teacher personality traits or competencies may shape their practice decisions, but I think the cultural and workplace contexts shape people's behaviors in very powerful ways.’ In a recent email from Harvard researcher Justin Reich I was advised that….. @julielindsay | padlet.com/julielindsay/EdTechSA | #edtechsa @EdTechSA
