Location-Based Learning: The City as a Learning Playground

ITEC Webinar

Date: Monday, January 27 2014, 19:00 – 20:30
Time: 7 pm IST, 12 pm EST, 5 pm GMT (more)
Registration: Closed

Motivation is the holy grail of learning. As appealing as school might be, it is usually a sterile arena that requires a great deal of talent on the part of the teacher. This webinar will focus on the ability to motivate learning by contextualizing it within authentic everyday surroundings while promoting bottom-up knowledge with democratic values – something that John Dewey initiated and modern-day technology facilitates much more effectively.
Examples of the use of location-based learning technology, taken mainly from the experience of education systems in various communities in Israel (kibbutzim, towns, and cities), will be discussed.
