Developing Digital Learning Spaces: From Vision to Reality
Yes, emerging technologies have great potential. But how do we make them work in our schools today? This session explores the implementation of a multi-dimensional digital space with three components—a course space, a student-content creation space, and a knowledge commons that supports both—and examines how they support the development of learning literacy. Come prepared to evaluate these three spaces and discuss the organizational readiness that was required to take them from conversation to implementation.

Questions to consider when considering building learning spaces:
How would you characterize learning spaces in schools today?
What does systemic mean to you?
Are there new literacies? Or just a new context for the development of literacy?
What five cores skills would you identify as key components that contribute to the development of literacy?
Given those core skills, what attributes run horizontally across all core skills? (for example, adaptability or intellectual curiosity are attributes that may be
What are the key components of a multidimensional learning space?
What is the relationship/importance of the interactions between formal and informal learning spaces?
How can/will you promote informal learning within the context of a virtual learning space?
Why is the development of a multidimensional learning space essential to education in the 21st Century?
How do we rethink the dimensions of learning? Can, and should, learning be independent of time, space, and place, in K-12 education?
Who are the critical stakeholders that need to be involved in developing a multidimensional learning space?
What is required for an organization to be ready for the development of a multidimensional learning space?
Do you believe that social networking is a skill that schools should help students learn and understand? Are there other forms of networking that might be more appropriate? (academic networking, professional networking)
In a digital learning space, what new roles are required? What roles emerge?
What policies do you have in place to scaffold and support the learning that takes place in these new spaces?
How will you assess what takes place in the learning space?
What solution will you build?
Should students be able to contribute content to the knowledge commons?
