Nánari lýsing (á ensku):

Kaiju Kangas, Pirita Seitamaa-Hakkarainen and Kaj Hakkarainen, professors at the University of Helsinki, Finland, will give a seminar on their research on Tuesday October 8th at 15-16:00 at the School of Education presenting their project the Growing Mind.

The researchers have been developing the research and practice of transdisciplinary education combining Finnish traditions in craft, design and technology, science, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), with the methods of digital fabrication and hands-on learning. They have had several large research projects around the theme, the most recent being the Growing Mind project.

About the project:
The youth are our most important resource for future sustainable development. The Growing Mind-project aims at producing means for the renewal and development of schools, teachers and students on the personal, social, and institutional level. The project aims for societal impact and brings to the forefront the challenges arising from digitalization on the social, personal and institutional level. The project activities are done in cooperation between school practitioners and academic research. The activities support the aims of the new core curriculum, students’ 21st century skills and teachers’ professional development.

Objects in our life: A shared reading of Karen Barad´s agential realism

Tími: 2. maí 15:00 – 17:00

Staðsetning: Aðalbygging Menntavísindasvið Háskóla Íslands v/Stakkahlíð, K206

Gro er stödd hér á landi í tengslum við Evrópuverkefnið MakEY – sköpunarsmiðjur (e. makerspaces) í menntun ungra barna. Hún lýsir smiðjunni svo:

I am working on a project on how a public library in Norway translates the ideas of the informal maker-movement into the semi-formal library practice. The approach to this change of practice takes departure in Yrjö Engeström´s theory of expansive learning, and his ideas may have some similarities with Barad´s agential realism. Recently, researchers looking into learning in makerspaces has paid attention to Barad, and a need for good reasons to choose the one before the other or as an alternative – to combine them seems present. However, going into Barad´s philosophy is a process of growth  – dwelling in it for a long time seems necessary. Barad´s work has implications for several topics, spanning from gender performativity to groundbreaking ideas concerning epistemological and ontological questions in research.

Research on learning in makerspaces is a growing field and is only in its very beginning. What is maybe new to educational research in that concern is that the practice in makerspaces seems to be more of a hands-on activity than verbal. It has been an increasing interest for exploring new approaches to how the material, sensory and embodied aspects of learning are to be understood in these contexts, and Barad´s agential realism is one of them.

Preparations: bring one favourite object or a picture of it, and prepare to say a few words about the object and your relation to it.

It is not required to read the literature before the workshop –  the idea is to go deep into short excerpts of Barads work – bracketing the text together and discuss how the concepts introduced may inform how we understand the role of everyday objects that surrounds us. For those who want to read Barad´s book later, a free pdf is to find in the dropbox “BaradWorkshop”. Sign up for the workshop by sending an e-mail to: soljak@hi.is ,and you will get access to the dropbox.

The enhancement of creativity and innovation with virtual reality. 

A socio-cultural-psychological shift has been made possible with learning that is enabled by technology. The emergence and omnipresence of artificial intelligence and immersive visualization technologies have the potential to shape/re-shape the boundaries of creative imagination and expression. This workshop will elucidate the future trajectories of how education is set to evolve with new age technology of immersive virtual reality. It will talk through the opportunities and means to envisage and create learning environments that acts as creative incubators in which learners are mentored, stimulated, provoked and engaged with virtual reality. It will further expand on how virtual reality and augmented reality can serve as a platform for respecting the self-expression and individuality of learners to further inspire creative thinking. The boundaries of cognitive capacities define and engage with creative endeavours and is conditioned physical, conceptual, actual and deceptive frames of references.  Creative endeavours with immersive visualization technology show that there is immense potential to tap in to the domains of experiential learning especially when it comes to design as the participant is not in the allocentric spatial frame of reference.

 

The workshop will present two case studies where young children engaged with virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D printing. Through the case studies the workshop will demonstrate the activities embedded a subconscious and emotionally laden multimodal process and how that contributed to the capability to draw on different semiotic modes and to transform meanings between them. The workshop will further present a series of guided hands-on exercise with augmented and virtual reality with the work flow.

Designing for making across kindergarten and science museum: Tensions and opportunities

Fræðimennirnir Alfredo Jornet og Ole Smørdal við Háskólann í Osló eru staddir hér á landi í tengslum við Evrópuverkefnið MakEY – makerspaces in the early years. Þeir munu halda erindi um tilviksrannsókn í Noregi sem þeir hafa skipulagt í tengslum við verkefnið og er um nýsköpunarsmiðjur í vísindasöfnum og hvernig má nýta þær í menntun ungra barna. Hér fyrir neðan er nánari lýsing.

Makerspaces are becoming common in science centers and museums targeting youth and adults, but little is known about how these spaces might be designed for supporting younger children’s creativity and knowledge. In this presentation, we report on design-based research involving ​​the university, a science and technology museum, and a kindergarten in Norway, who collaborate to develop and test design concepts for makerspaces targeting 5-6 years old children. The research comprises several phases, including initial ethnographic observations of children playing at their kindergarten and during existing activities at the museum. These observations​ become input to ​design workshops in which the goal is to develo a makerspace activity suitable for but also taking an innovative approach to the needs and motivations of early years education. Using a sociocultural approach, we identify design concepts and analyze the different ways in which the socio-material conditions surrounding the design and implementation of the ​pilot activity support and/or hinder opportunities for learning and creativity. Preliminary findings suggest the prevalence of cultural and historical tensions between the need to provide structure and constraint to facilitate young learner’s participation, and the goal of supporting freedom and creativity. Findings also suggest the importance of developing maker projects spanning across the kindergarten and the science museum, rather than being limited to the latter, and the importance of considering how strong and weak framing approaches structure opportunities for engaging in creative making.
