Symposium on the Future of Learning | Workshop 5
Thomas Nárosy | “Joint Advantage: Education Innovation Depends on Overlapping Collaboration”
The OECD has dedicated almost 10 years to the ILE Innovative Learning Environments project. At the core, the project analyzed how young people learn today and under what conditions they can learn better. The results of the project – in a way a “blueprint” of the development of education systems in the OECD area “beyond teaching” – describe the core of innovative learning environments using seven learning principles, while three development dimensions outline the direction for a dynamic implementation of this core. The third dimension “transformation and change in learning ecosystems” emphasizes the need to open up the “networked learning ecosystem”. The Future Learning Lab Wien FLL.wien understands itself, among other things, as a learning space in exactly this sense. The workshop will focus on three issues: Firstly, the recently published “OECD Handbook for Innovative Learning Environments” is presented; secondly the FLL.wien concept and program will be introduced and discussed, and, thirdly, opening up to hitherto untapped development potentials. In particular, the focus is on aspects for which the “classical interior of education” is dependent on opening and collaboration.
