Week 7 Reflections
Things that are becoming 'redundant' or having to improvise/change to keep up with technology...
Pretty much everything is being disrupted e.g. cars, music, think of blockbuster or civic video where you used to go in and rent dvds or videos when now you can netflix everything!
The disruption can be more severe if you have no foresight to keep up with trends.
Real environment - the real world
Augmented reality - think pokemon go
Augmented virtual - putting layers of something like fortnight
Virtual environment - like the inside of the computer or the Sims
How can mixed realities be used in class or school?
Wicked problems- problems in a school or education
A problem that never ends
Solvable - authentic learning experience like the beach shore, you would take them to the beach - that is solvable
Difficult - teaching computational thinking, it may be new but you've done a class but it's not something you can get easily
Wicked - the achievement gap is wicked because the solutions that you put in place may work for your school but not necessarily other schools, not broad for all involved, the definition of achievement is not the same etc it becomes a wicked problem
Another example is BYOD as a considered wicked problem for reasons e.g.
- teachers have different abilities and priorities
- different financial situations
- a range of devices
Building capacity and strengths of all are emphasized
It is shared in and across schools
Its about the impact on student leadership
