London Knowledge Lab: Learning, Context And the Role of Technology

Professor Rosemary Luckin from the London Knowledge Lab gave a inaugural lecture at the Institute of Education on the 27th January. After her session, she concluded that there are 3 pairs of key issues and interestingly 3 illusions:

    The Knowledge Illusion.
    The Technology illusion.
    The Institutional illusion.

The challenging of a monolithic instruction has made possible that 21st. century developments in technology and education allow learners to decide how, where and with whom they learn. However, as Bob Harrison points out, "current technology rich learning development models need further work if they are to result in applications that enable learners to take full advantage of this situation."

Now this is true for technology but teachers have to work in the context, too. Here's where sharing and meta cognition are to be inseparable. This is not about them using technology, it’s about sharing. "I’m not saying you have to share to be a great teacher, I’m saying if you do, you are. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.", writes Dean Shareski in a post titled Teachers Who Share.

Shareski also offers a list of blogs that share something in common, "their classrooms are open to the world." Get to know them:
