Kadri Riis from Estonia may be the first student to do a master thesis on Edukata design work. If you know of more academic work or publications related to Edukata-inspired design work in the field of education, do let us know.
It’s always a challenge to move from a project (that developed Edukata) to a sustained long-term existence. I’m glad to report that the Finnish Board of Education has granted funds for the Future Classroom Network in Finland, which will start rolling out the Future Classroom Toolkit and Edukata, first in five schools, later within five […]
Edukata was piloted in numerous schools in Finland. Recently I was in the closing seminar in Oulu, Finland, talking about Edukata and – most importantly – talking with the teachers who had piloted Learning Activities designed by our team, and also designed their own, using a beta version of Edukata.
Edukata is a model for creating Learning Activities that help teachers reimagine their teaching. Here’s a short video showing what 10 Spanish schools did with a set of interesting Learning Activities.
The keynote at EdMedia 2014 by professor Jill Jameson titled “Why we Need Distributed, Transformational e-Leadership and Trust in the Fifth Age of Educational Media and Technology” resonated well with Edukata. Here I explain how Edukata can help schools take leadership over the changing eLearning and educational technology landscape.
Team Edukata has now organized two Facilitator workshops, one in Denmark and one in Finland. All in all, the concept seems to work and is useful to the participants.
We at Team Edukata have been hard at work. We don’t want to be the only people that can organize Edukata design sessions at schools. So we’re creating a way for anyone to become a certified Edukata facilitator.
“I would never have thought that my classmates were so creative.” The Spanish school of SEK Atlántico has been an active participant in the iTEC project, piloting Learning Activities designed using the Edukata method. They’ve seen the effects of giving their teachers new ideas in a constructive and supportive manner, as Learning Activities.
This week’s Eminent conference brought together most European ministries of education, ICT suppliers, academics, teachers and teacher trainers. The change management process developed in the iTEC project (which includes Edukata) was showcased in the conference, and sparked both interest and collaboration possibilities.
Our poster is a bit to the side, but already after 15 minutes I’ve had many good conversations with people from as far as Israel.
