    W1: Making With Kids in Europe - To Foster Digital Literacy, to Make a Better World, and to Build a New Entrepreneurship Education: Making With Kids in Europe - To foster digital literacy, to make a better world, and to build a new entrepreneurship education
    Martin Ebner , Sandra Schön, N. N. & Maria Grandl
    Learning goals: Hands-on experiences with simple maker tools and projects with children for beginners and insights into diverse European approaches and experiences with maker education Description: Some of Europe’s leading experts on making with children will share their experiences and different approaches within this joint workshop The workshop will include presentations about teacher education within makerspaces at the University of Technologies Graz (AT), about inspiring social innovation and educational projects at the Waag Society (NL) and about the European initiative DOIT, which sees making as a good base for an early entrepreneurship education Participants will work with a set of tools and smaller maker projects For example they can program educational games in Scratch, build a dough piano (which will do music!) with a MaKeyMaKey set, or sew some “smart gloves” Interactive discussions will be the base to develop own future implementations. Participants: This workshop is planned for beginners within the field of making with children Please bring your mobile advices (phone, tablet, computer) into the workshop, if possible Max 26 people

    W2: Supporting Groups in Research-Based Learning Processes With Digital Tools: Workshop: Supporting groups in research-based learning processes with digital tools
    Research-based learning is a learning format that requires the active participation of learners in self-directed processes of learning and cooperation under the guidance and scaffolding of teachers/tutors/facilitators. The use of digital media in research-based teaching and learning offers new possibilities for enhancing the self-directed learning both in individual and group facets. It also enables the development of key competences, such as information competence, ability for self-organization or the competence for solving problems, and it empowers social learning. Taking into considerations these benefits, this workshop aims to offer a broad view of the educational possibilities of digital tools for research-based learning group processes, in order to increase effective collaboration among groups, beyond physical constraints. Therefore, within the frame of the workshop, different digital tools from a range of categories (e.g. collaborative annotation, collaborative writing, pinboards, mind and concept mapping) will be explored and analyzed. After that, the participants will develop and present a brief research-based learning proposal by including some of those tools and provide feedback to the proposals of other participants. All the proposals will be collected, to share ideas among the participants.

    Welcome, General Session & Opening Keynote: Maria Beatrice Ligorio: A model for blended course: psychological aspects
    Maria Beatrice
    The crises in the job market recorded in the last decade has psychological implications in particular for young people attempting to enter the professional world with higher education. It is expected from them to have high competences and great flexibility. To accomplish such expectations, educational agencies, and universities in particular, are required to re-define their educational proposals and methods. Blended courses seem to be able to offer the possibility for students to appropriate not only content but also ways to learn and work together, producing changes at the psychological level, in terms of modification of individual and collective positions. In this presentation, a blended educational model developed at the University of Bari (Italy) will be presented, reporting data and results. The model it is inspired to well-established theoretical roots – such as socio-constructivism, knowledge building, dialogism – and innovative approaches such as the “trialogical” theory. Furthermore, various pedagogical methods (such as Jigsaws, peer-tutoring, role-taking, progressive inquiry) are combined and adapted to blended contexts.

    Workshop: Developing Transformative Leadership for New Learning Futures
    Mark Brown & Ulf-Daniels Ehlers
    This workshop is predicated on the assumption that building strategic and transformative leadership capability is essential to harnessing the opportunities and effectively managing the challenges facing institutions in an age of rapid and uncertain change. More than ever we need to invest in leadership development, especially given unprecedented change forces reshaping the complexity of the higher education eco-system. However, the challenge is that ‘most leaders of learning and teaching report being unsure about how to lead successfully when faced with rapid and significant change’ (Scott, Coates & Anderson, 2008, p. xvii). The key question is what type of leadership for teaching and learning is required in the digital-era? In exploring this question the workshop reflects on different approaches to the management of teaching and learning innovations and places strong emphasis on enabling transformative models of leadership for better learning futures. The basic premise is that learning transformations depend on both the large and small actions of many people working individually and collectively for educational change. Framed within this distributed conception of leadership, workshop participants will be challenged to critically evaluate and strategically analyse about some of the wicked problems and potential future scenarios facing higher education in the 21st Century.

    W4: I See What You're Saying: Applying Visual Communication Skills to Online Instruction
    Diane Wilcox & Tom Wilcox
    Using interactive facilitation techniques and free image editing software, this workshop will enable participants to develop basic visual communication skills and use these skills to create effective instructional images. We will introduce participants to several learning theories that explain visual learning and support the use of images in instruction. We will explain how four types of instructional images (representational, organizational, interpretative, and transformational) may be used to engage the learner, combat cognitive overload, and maximize learning, and show why the fifth kind of image (decorative) is a poor choice for instruction. We will introduce participants to basic design principles to help them master the use of contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity, layout, and color in their instructional materials. Finally, we will use a free image editing application (Autodesk Sketchbook) to: 1) demonstrate basic design principles, and 2) provide participants with structured activities that will enable them to develop visual literacy competencies.

    General Session & Keynote: Heli Ruokamo: Friday Keynote: Pedagogical Model for Innovative Learning
    Heli Ruokamo
    The development of pedagogical models is crucial. Teachers are not yet fully aware of how to use technology in pedagogically appropriate ways, and they need functional examples. An effective pedagogical model will make teachers aware of the different means available to them, and it will ensure that students benefit from a more meaningful learning experience. Teachers, tutors, and curriculum designers can apply pedagogical models in designing, teaching, tutoring, and evaluating learning processes. Pedagogical models can be used in various ways, such as the planning of instruction on the basis of a model or a combination of models, and depending on the situation involved. They can be combined and should, in fact, be adapted to match teachers’ own pedagogical thinking. In this talk, a pedagogical model for innovative learning (IL) developed at the Centre for Media Pedagogy at the University of Lapland, Finland will be presented. The IL model is based on 15 years of research and development of pedagogical models focused on, for instance, mobile, playful, virtual reality, and simulation-based meaningful learning environments. The models are developed during several research projects; they are theoretically well grounded on socio-constructivist and socio-cultural perspectives on meaningful learning. The models are designed, implemented, analyzed, and redesigned through iterative cycles of design-based research. They are based on various data collection and analysis methods that develop both theory and practice. Currently, we have started to commercialize the models and develop research ideas for businesses and educational export services. The pedagogical model for IL combines lessons learned from previous models to present a model for the models, or a super-model.
