Starting from scratch

If you are interested, create a learning environment from scratch that would bring to life what you understand is essential in education. Include:

  • Intent – What is the intent? Is this different from an aim? How does it take into account: subject matter, student, teacher?
  • Resources – What are the basic ingredients? What is the relationship of these to the intent?
  • Organization – What is the context / environment and how is it organized? eg. furniture, seating, etc. Is prior knowledge / skill necessary?
  • Reflection – What is the connection of observational feedback to the intent?

Can learning environments be designed to be different from the transfer of known information, known understandings or known frameworks? What is your burning question regarding education / teaching / learning to which you really don’t have an answer?
