Educators' Guide to Innovation

Connecting educators interested in innovation

Welcome!

Innovation Showcase

I now do most of my writing at http://adriancamm.com

I was fortunate enough to be asked to 'cameo' keynote the 2010 Innovation Showcase. Below was the keynote description.

A glimpse into the (Un)Classroom
In the global, networked environments of the 21st Century, there is a growing divide between how students prefer to learn and the curriculum that is being offered in many schools. At home, learning is game-based, participatory, peer-assisted and based around personal interests. But at school students are often asked to be passive consumers of content.

In this cameo keynote, Adrian will give you a glimpse into his facilitated, student-driven classroom which is based on his belief that the most powerful thing a teacher can do is to become a learner. He will paint a picture of students focussed on the exploration of current and real-world events, where discussion is encouraged and where students are working in small study groups using technologies appropriate to their work. But most importantly it is a classroom where students are genuinely engaged in their learning.

Times are Changing is a short video I made some time ago highlighting the changing face of education.

Hi Adam

 

I see that you have been 'poached' from Shepparton by the lovely Soula.

I was on the management commitees of GTAC, Ecolinc and Victorian Space Science Education Centre. I took early retirement last year but here I am again in Student Learning Division.
