The Active Learning Ecosystem Reimagined: Pedagogy, Technology, and Space
Technology is often the Band-Aid for education's woes. Millions are spent on technology each year, trying unsuccessfully to make a difference where it counts: students' success. A more holistic look at the ecosystem of an active learning environment, the pedagogy, technology, and space helps envision what a true, deep learning experience might allow. It takes an active teacher for active learning to occur. First, educators have to teach differently. Then, knowing what the pedagogy might be, a strategy can be built for the technology and spatial needs. One builds on the next.
