A Modern Learning Environment at Ladbrooks School
  • Sharing and Thinking Collaboratively

To begin, sit back...
  • and enjoy Ken Robinsons thoughts

Some questions around our beliefs...
  • What are our beliefs about the nature of our
  • What are our beliefs around the attributes our
    learners need now and for the future?

Defining our thinking .

Collaborative teaching?
  • We will start with the BLUE HAT to frame our
  • We will share some of our thoughts using the 6
    Thinking Hats
  • Following this, you will be involved in recording
    your thoughts and ideas under the headings of
    red, yellow, black and green hats
  • We will share these ideas at the end as part of
    our discussion

Way back then .

Today in NZ!- Stonefields (Auckland)

What is a Modern Learning Environment? (MLE)
  • Physical environments that support the
    needs of a modern learner
  • They tend to have increased flexibility, openness
    and a greater access to resources
  • Teacher - student ratios are reduced
  • Far greater opportunities for collaboration
    student(s) to student(s), teacher(s) to

Collaborative teaching?
  • Several teachers with many children
  • Often multi-level and various age groups
  • Can be in one space, MLE or in traditional class
    set up
  • All teachers are responsible for all learners
  • Individual needs are catered for effectively
  • Teacher expertise exponentially increased

Collaborative teaching?
  • Excitement - It could really revitalise our
    practice and learning for the children.
  • Sadness - Some of the neat things we do currently
    may change
  • Fear - What will this look like?

Collaborative teaching?
  • Supports strength-based teaching
  • When there is one teacher, the learning is often
  • When there is a team, it is parallel and learning
  • faster
  • Additional possibilities for Gifted and Talented
    and remedial attention
  • Increased connectivity between students and staff
  • Teachers have told us they wouldnt want to teach
    any other way

The TOROA environment...
  • Will students feel overwhelmed?
  • How will siblings in the same learning community
    be accommodated?
  • How will childrens social groupings be affected?
  • Will it be noisy?
  • How will the ages and stages be catered for?
  • If I have an issue, who will I talk to?

The possibilities!
  • We could do a arts/language rotation
  • We could involve families in more formalised
    before- school word reading, spelling and brick
    testing routines
  • We could use the library and Weka as quiet
    break-out spaces
  • Cooking would be easy - wed have the kitchen
  • The spare classrooms could be set up for art or
    music or PMP

Collaboration in action
