uLearn15 Day 2

It's day two of uLearn15 and I had two interesting breakouts lined up for my day.

First up this morning was :-
Making 3D printing a reality in the classroom
This was run by Tim from Mindkits.co.nz

We got to see lots of different ideas and project possibilities.
If you have a 3D printer in your school, then get onto this website http://enablingthefuture.org/



This afternoon's session was :-
Space to learn | Designing effective learning environments
by Mark Osborne


My big take away from this session was that if you don't get your planning, practices and pedagogy right, then you can have all the fancy furniture that you like. If you don't get it all together, you will just end up going back to victorian teaching methods in 21st century class rooms and furniture.

Also, this rule of 3 was interesting, but only really if you are building new or doing some serious renovating ... hammer anyone??
Rule of three 
never more than 3 walls 
3 types of seating 
3 points of focus 
3 acoustic zones

3D printed bot says ... "it was a good day"
