Temporary Conclusion

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 6 months ago

What have we concluded so far?


We believe that there is relationship between Informal Learning Contexts and Formal Learning Contexts.


LGCs are learning environments connecting the formal learning agenda of educational institutions with the personal learning goals of students. They are spaces established through negotiation with teachers & institutions in order to achieve effective learning. Effective learning is shaped by the environmental influences of success and satisfaction.


Success is measured in terms of:


  • knowledge and understanding,
  • attainment of educational award,
  • personal growth and development
  • career opportunities;


Satisfaction is measured in terms of:


  • the conviviality of the learning spaces,
  • friendships,
  • personal relationships,
  • social networks; and
  • minimizing student debt.


Success and satisfaction are 2 sides of the same coin and should be acknowledged as interwoven influences

Satisfaction - I'm not sure it goes here, but also the confidence to take appropriate risks to extend and develop learning. (appropriate is a bit normative, but I'm happy to discuss this.

Public Value as a new category e.g.

contribution to the learning of peers
contribution to the lgc, e.g. improving things for the next group
contribution to family and friends
contribution to communities
contribution to other learning communities
dissemination of helpful/useful information
