Description

Keynote at the National Conference about flexible learning, 15-17 July Wrest Point Conference Centre, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia / Australasian Association of Distance Education Schools.

In this address, Professor Leinonen will discuss ‘meta-design’, which means design of ‘things’ for educators to design their own teaching and for learners to design their own learning. He will also present a generic Finnish / Northern European perspective on ICT in education, which he and his colleagues aim to make a pan-European model through a project entitled Innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom (iTEC). iTEC is a four-year, large-scale project that takes an informed look the potential classrooms of the future. With 27 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education and funding from the European Commission of 9.45 million Euros, iTEC will provide a model describing how the deployment of technology in support of innovative teaching and learning activities can move beyond small scale pilots and become embedded in all Europe's schools. iTEC is being piloted in over 1,000 classrooms in 12 countries, making it by the most significant pan-European validation of ICT in schools yet undertaken.
