The Future of Learner Experience (LX)

  • Last week, thanks to the support of the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation, we had the opportunity to gather a group of innovative educators and an absolutely brilliant crew of learners that were eager to discuss the future of learner experiences.
  • When discussing learner experience, or generally any aspect of design education, student voice must be present and celebrated.
  • Each model provides whole group dialogue, processing various aspects of each model and generating questions that provide a platform for deeper learning.
  • Well known for their emphasis on developing partnerships to increase learner experience, they provided insights into their relentless approach to bridge building within the community to provide outlets for all students throughout their school.
  • It was self-designated groups of learners, rolling up their sleeves, asking tough questions and designing the future LX.

When Students Design Their Own Games They Learn Way More Than Coding – EdSurge News

  • Last year, my eighth-grade student Nathan made a game that was banned from Scratch.
  • The GDC is a year-long project which asks students to combine their knowledge of programming, graphic design, video production and web design into creating their very own video game.
  • Students progress in programming from Code.org, using their great curriculum resources, to Hopscotch and Swift Playgrounds in grade five to pre-made Scratch games in grade six, where they were essentially told how to make the game and then asked to remix it by adding in modifications.
  • The next year, students began making mini-games on their own to get ready for the year-long game design challenge.
  • Basically, by the time the game design challenge starts, students are not told how, or when, to do anything.
