MLEs in the news


Interesting news item on the Campbell Live programme tonight, featuring footage from the Modern Learning Environments Expo that CORE Education ran in Christchurch a few weeks ago, and also from some of the new schools built in NZ in the past couple of years. The item was titled "Bringing the Kiwi classroom into the digitial age", and provides quite a good introduction to some of the thinking behind MLEs, however I'd see it as more than simply a response to the digital age. Much of what is illustrated confirms what we all understand to be effective pedagogy – stuff that Dewey and others highlighted in their research over a century ago. Well done TV3 for providing a useful starting point for discussion around MLEs!
