Sharing learning designs – Have a look at these Padlets

In parallel to the HANDSON MOOC 3, Professor Diana Laurillard from the London Knowledge LabInstitute of Education  is leading The “Third International Learning Design Challenge: Move-It-Online” in collaboration with Building Community Knowledge, MirandaNetCreative Digital Solutionsand Hands-ON ICT project.

Both courses are addressed to educators and focus on learning design. More specifically, the aim of the 3rd online International Learning Design Challenge is about understanding the impact of taking teaching and learning activities online. It provides ways of describing and planning effective teaching ideas, especially those that illustrate ‘pedagogically purposeful uses of technology for learning’. The Challenge is to transfer this to your own optimal way to move it online.

In both activities, we are currently sharing our designs and prototypes. These are examples of these great works!

The International Design Challenge introduces the Learning Designer, a simple web interface [see images from the Padlet] that educators (a) find good examples of learning design, and (b) express the detail of your best pedagogic designs in a way that makes it easy for other teachers to adopt and adapt them. With this tool, you can:

  • browse contributors’ learning designs for selected learning outcomes, topics and activities.
  • review designs and adapt them to your own context.
  • create your own design, and make it available to your students (as a Word document, or a VLE session), or your team, or to the wider community.
