Ráðstefna um vendinám í skólum

Keilir stendur fyrir ráðstefnu um hlutverk kennara og skólastjórnenda í innleiðingu vendináms og vinnubúðir um notkun vendináms í skólastarfi, fimmtudaginn 8. júní kl. 13:00 - 16:00.

Ráðstefnan er styrkt af Nordplus Junior Menntaáætlun norrænu ráðherranefndarinnar.

  • Dagskrá ráðstefnunnar

    Ráðstefnan verður í formi stuttra fyrirlestra og vinnustofa. Dagskráin er birt með fyrirvara um breytingar. Boðið verður upp á fjórar mismunandi vinnustofur og verða þær bæði á íslensku og ensku: Hlutverk skólastjórnenda og skólasviða í innleiðingu vendináms; Vendinám á breiðari vettvangi; Nánari og dýpri þekking á viðfangsefninu; og Reynslusögur kennara.

    13:00 - Setning ráðstefnunnar

    Sagt frá Nordplus Junior verkefninu en meðal markmiða þess er að búa til tengslanet sérfræðinga í vendinámi sem geti nýst kennurum og skólastjórnendum í framtíðinni. 

    13:10 - Marika Toivola: Flipped Learning & Flipped Assessment (enska)

    Í anda vendináms getið þið undirbúið ykkur fyrir morgundaginn með því að horfa á upptöku frá aðal fyrirlesara ráðstefnunnar. Þetta er yfirgripsmikið efni á ensku og því gæti verið gott að gefa sér tíma til að velta aðeins vöngum yfir því sem hún hefur fram að færa á ykkar eigin hraða. Hægt er að bera fram spurningar og koma athugasemdum á framfæri fyrirfram og í rauntíma hérna

    • Peter Holmboe: Designs for Learning and Learning Designs

      Peter's will talk about teaching as a Design Science is amongst other new concepts on how education and learning are supported. A common feature for them all is that they address the need to see learning as results of design processes in which students are supported and given opportunities to learn. Flipped Learning is often seen as a set of design principles that inform teachers in their designs for learning. But do the design intentions and the design principles match the students understanding? And is Flipped Learning merely a design principle? 
       
      This presentation highlights some central findings during a recent study on Danish high schools and Vocational Education and Training (VET) school. The aim of the study was to investigate how the students could participate and grasp opportunities to learn in a Flipped Learning environment building on a specific set of design principles. The findings show that there is a considerable gap between the intentions by the teacher, the Flipped Learning design and the students understanding of how the design should support them in their learning.

    • Hanne-Lene Hvis Dreesen: The transformation of a learning design

      Participants with weak educational qualifications cannot avoid the requirements of the lifelong learning framwork. On that basis, I have insvestigated how Flipped Learning can support students who are taking part of formal education within the qualifications framework level 5 in continuing training. It turned out that videos, when replacing reading, motivated the participants and supported their sense of mastery and learning.

      Simultaneously, my pedagogies and dicdactical approaches changed radically because I moved the traditional presentations away from the classroom and used the gained time with more varied and student centred acitivites. We found that applying the Flipped Learning approach made an overall positive difference to the students' knowledge acquisition and learning outcome.

  • Styrkt af Nordplus Junior

    Ráðstefnan er styrkt af Nordplus Junior Menntaáætlun norrænu ráðherranefndarinnar og er liður í samstarfsverkefni skóla í Eistlandi, Finlandi, Danmörku og á Íslandi. Verkefnið, sem hófst í ágúst 2016 og lýkur í ágúst 2017, gengur út á að setja saman Norrænt samstarfsnet sérfræðinga og kennara sem nýta vendinám í kennslu.
     
    Markmiðið með verkefninu er að setja saman gagnlegar upplýsingar um vendinám á sameiginlegri vefsíðu ásamt gagnagrunni og tenglum til sérfræðinga í samstarfslöndunum sem fást við vendinám. Þá standa samstarfsaðilar verkefnisins fyrir röð vinnustofa þar sem þátttakendur geta kynnst kennsluaðferðum vendináms á öllum stigum, hvort heldur um er að ræða kennara sem eru að stíga sín fyrstu skref eða skólastjórnendur sem hafa hug á að innleiða vendinám í sínum stofnunum.

    • About the NEXT Project

      The Project "NEXT - From Best to Next Practices in Flipped Learning" and funded by Nordplus Junior. The objective will be to create an active expert network of teachers in the partner countries practicing flipped learning in and as a part of their educational contexts, specifically by highlighting best practice initiatives.
       
      Flipped Learning has for the past few years been a revelation in the traditional school system, especially when dealing with equal opportunities to learning by bridging both time-issues, distances and learning disabilities. Numerous initiatives have been taking place all around the world, most noticeable in the United States, but mainly the changes have been on individual or local level. The international trend has been for new framework curricula published in several countries to encourage teachers to change their classroom teaching from “teacher-centered” to more “student- centered” approaches. These days, the idea of “flipping” the teaching and learning process fascinates many teachers who are trying to change their teacher-centered teaching style to a more student- centered learning approach. 

      Among the goals of the project is to examine, develop and implement a specific Nordic/Baltic view on Flipped Learning thus making sure that we will retain our thinking and way of practicing school - also when it comes to new ICT-related approaches. The project aims to achieve this by engaging in national teacher workshops and by creating both national and Nordic/Baltic networks of teacher practicing these methods. The focus for the project is highly relevant to the specific aims of Nordplus Junior. The Flipped Learning concept makes use of ICT and blended learning activities, adding an extra dimension to traditional distance learning methods by developing new uses of the classroom and traditional in-school learner activities. Furthermore the concept meets individual learners on their own terms providing them with a chance to access traditional courses where they want and as often as they require, giving the teacher more time for one-to-one tutoring in the classroom and at the same time promoting the opportunity for developing 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.
