Profile of "new" environment Flexible, Mobile, Versatile - a change in environments, technology changed, students changed, role of education changed Learning space concept – learner, learning focused – social in structure, collaborative. Evolution and development of technology – natural growth and expansion of technology, whether result of business, industry, or education.

Learning space concept – learner, learning focused – social in structure, collaborative.

Evolution and development of technology – natural growth and expansion of technology, whether result of business, industry, or education.

Flexible, Mobile, Versatile Learning space - The term classroom implied a certain structure, physical structure, and certain expectations about the type of acceptable activities. These spaces are now for learning, hence learning space. Learning commons - A learning commons is a larger space, a larger and more expansive learning space.

Can technology really make a difference?

Can technology really make a difference? Matching technology to teaching and learning styles Incidental or qualitative differences Impact measured by student or learner perceptions

Matching technology to teaching and learning styles

Incidental or qualitative differences

Impact measured by student or learner perceptions

We have NO choice … students expect technology to be used in the classroom, in learning … it is a PREREQUISITE to learning … it can be used to GAIN and MAINTAIN attention

First Things First The key mission – teaching and learning Old ways may NOT be the best ways Change is good AND necessary Find INNOVATORS for technology SUSTAIN SUPPORT

The key mission – teaching and learning

Old ways may NOT be the best ways

Change is good AND necessary

Find INNOVATORS for technology

SUSTAIN SUPPORT

Concluding Thoughts Today’s (and tomorrow’s) students are more comfortable and confident with technology – CAPITALIZE ON THIS Yesterday’s faculty MAY not be aware of technological opportunities WE must find ways to use, integrate, adapt, adopt technology, effectively, efficiently and instructionally
