Wow! I am really excited with the title already!
Stefán Jökulson was the FIRST and so far ONLY presenter (apart from Kjell Sundstedt's keynote yesterday) not using any technological tools for his presentation. It felt strange at the beginning as we all sentisised to stare at the white screen on the wall and wait for the first slide to appear. After the initial cognitive confusion, it felt refreshing :)
There were six points he raised. Teaching will have a future IF
- there is a cognitive curriculum - media education is about helping students make their meaning
- teachers study imagination - we need to think beyond the realms of reality and be more creative
- teachers approach teaching and learning as communication - even if teachers do not intentionally communicate their goals and intentions, they still communicate as the meaning is in the message
- teachers think about meaning as movement and learning as practice, teachers should also stop talking solo and answer their own questions
- teachers and students reinvent themselves - the cultural artefacts carry with them attributes which we have to be aware of, for instance teachers still deep down do not believe that digital resources can be used for learning
