Kickoff Keynote
Beware the Transformation Trap: Making Meaningful Change

So often we hear about how new devices, pedagogies or teaching philosophies are “transforming education”. We hear about models focused on redefinition and innovation. However, how closely aligned are these strategies, ideas and devices to the real focus of our schools - our students? This session explores the transformation trap - the idea that simply being “different” or new is better. It refocuses the discussion of innovation and educational technology back on the students and how these changes can truly support their learning in real classrooms.

 
Jennie Magiera is the Digital Learning Coordinator for the Academy for Urban School Leadership, a network of 32 Chicago Public Schools, and previously taught math to 4th and 5th graders. A White House Champion for Change, Apple Distinguished Educator, Google Certified Teacher and CPS’ 2012 Tech Innovator of the Year, Jennie has been working to redefine education through effective technology use. She explores how to leverage 1:1 devices such as Chromebooks and iPads to increase student collaboration, self-efficacy and creativity. Jennie is also passionate about transforming professional learning, co-founding PLAYDATE and other new conference concepts. Aside from her students, Jennie's great loves in life are sci fi, mashed potatoes, Tabasco sauce, her dog and her husband. You can follow Jennie on Twitter at @MsMagiera or through her blog TeachingLikeIt’s2999.

General Session & Keynote


The Future of Learning

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to thedematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children’ seducation takes us through a series of startling results – children can self organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: Groups of children with access to the Internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata’s experimental results show a strange new future for learning. Using the TED Prize, he has now built seven ‘Schools in the Cloud’, of which some glimpses will be provided in the talk. TED Prize winner Sugata Mitra is at the forefront of a new approach to education which challenges how we teach today’s children in a technological age.

TED Prize winner Sugata Mitra is at the forefront of a new 
approach to education which challenges how we teach today’s children in a technological age.

He is Professor of Educational Technology at Newcastle University, 
UK and previously a Visiting Professor at MIT in the US.

Sugata is currently working on the School in the Cloud, 
which is the culmination of over a decade of research and observations from all over the world. The School in the Cloud is learning at the edge of chaos - a community, place and experience to discover and explore children’s learning as a self-organising system.

From his earliest experiments while working at NIIT in Delhi with the Hole in the Wall project, through to setting up SOLEs (self organised learning environments), Sugata discovered that children’s innate sense of learning is magnified when they are given the freedom to explore the internet in small groups.

Children in these environments, regardless of who they are or 
what language they speak, can competently search for answers to ‘big questions’, drawing rational, logical conclusions from their research. These are questions far ahead of what is expected of them in their school curriculum.

In 1999 Sugata and his colleagues at NIIT made a hole in a wall bordering an urban slum in Delhi, installed an internet-connected PC, and left to see what happened. Almost immediately, children from the slum began playing with the computer and in the process taught each other how to use it and get online.

This experiment, which inspired the book ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ 
that went on to become the Oscar winning film of 2009, was replicated in other parts of India, both urban and rural, with similar results.

It challenged some of the key assumptions of formal education, demonstrating that, even in the absence of any direct input from a teacher, an environment that stimulates curiosity could result in learning through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.

However, his research has shown that it’s not simply a case of 
taking teachers out of the equation: children in remote areas often perform poorly at school because they do not have access to good teaching.

As a result of further research which showed the importance of 
an encouraging adult in these circumstances, the Granny Cloud was born, after Sugata put out a plea for retired teachers in the UK to come forward who were willing to interact with children in India via Skype.

All conference attendees are invited to a special Kickoff Keynote.

Get there early, as space is limited.
