Director of innovation, Stephen Collis (Sydney Centre of Innovation in Learning) explains Professor David Thornburg's terms cave, campfire, and watering hole, and the different functions of these spaces in your learning environment. Stephen describes how these functions can occur in a virtual space as well as a physical space.

Director of innovation, Stephen Collis, at Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning, answers the question, "What is a flexible learning environment?" Stephen talks about the physical, virtual, and cultural layers that are involved and how they work together to create this environment.

An innovative learning environment encompasses all facets of the physical, social, and pedagogical context in which learning occurs.A Quality learning environment relates to the physical learning environment only.An innovative environment supports strengths-based teaching and learning. It offers students and teachers flexibility, agency, ubiquity, and connectedness.Working in an innovative learning environment where teaching and learning is collaborative, reflections and inquiries are shared, and communities engaged leads to a more robust, continuously improving community of practice.

Approaches to collaborative teaching

Participants of the Canterbury Delving Deeper Conference 2016 share how a change to more collaborative practice has worked for teachers and learners.

Eilish Moran, teacher at Halswell School, explains the importance of encouraging students to be self-directed learners. She describes how she established good learning routines which still allow for student choice. She comments, "I think the children in the collaborative environment have much more choice with where they’re going to learn, how they’re going to learn."

Why would I do this

How would I do this?

Digital technologies:• engage learners and reinforce learner-centredness and the key roles of emotions and motivation.• facilitate collaboration and joint learning, including through the use of social media, underpinning the social nature of learning principle.• facilitate differentiation through systematic tracking of individual learning paths, achievements, formative assessment and feedback.• enable connections supporting horizontal connectedness.

ICT leader, Fraser Malin describes how staff at Halswell School planned the infrastructure and incorporated technologies into their design for an innovative learning environment to support learning and teaching. They looked at how they could work together – teachers and students – and how technologies could be used to support their learning programmes.

ILEs move from a one-size-fits-all approach to a flexible environment (space, resources, people) that customises and adjusts to meet individual needs. Students should be at the centre of your planning.Develop your environment to provide support for learners that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual learner preferences, needs, and values. Students should be at the centre and part of planning for flexible, multi-use spaces. .

Getting started -Consider:• learners having more agency to plan what they need to work on, how they will do this, and where they will do this• collaboration between students• the needs of groups/ individuals being met• greater focus on self directed learning, including meaningful assessment processesQuality learning environments - Consider:*What is your school’s vision for learning? School community involved?* What do you want learning to look like?* How can learning spaces be used, modified to facilitate learning and teaching?* How will technologies be incorporated inclusively?* What resourcing and considerations are needed for planning an innovative learning environment?
