I guess this Future Classroom Scenarios second round course will be empowering & insightful, enhanced by my #FCLab experience in 2016!
Btw, this is … another Learning Diary by Claudia Valentini, and I’m proud to share it with the community of professionals participating to this MOOC!
I’m building it following the suggestions for a great Learning Diary given into #FCScourse:
Your first entry should briefly introduce yourself. Tell your peers a bit about who you are. You can use the starter activity of module 1 for this.
Your second entry should briefly introduce your teaching context. Tell your peers a bit about your school, classroom and what technologies you have access to.
All following entries should clearly identify which Module and which section the entry is linked to. The easiest way is to include the Module number and the section in the title of the entry (see the example below).
Make sure to include links, photos, videos, documents, etc. in your entries.
Don’t forget to add any interesting piece of content you come across on the course to your Learning Diary.
What does the future classroom look like?
The Learning Objectives for this module involve reflecting on my current practices and why you might want to change them, developing an understanding of the evolution of classroom organisation over time, considering the role of 21st Century Skills in the classroom, by evaluating my current classroom organisation and considering if and how I’d like to change it…
Why should we change our classroom practices?
Past, Present and Future Classrooms
21st Century Skills
The Future Classroom Lab in Brussels
Activity: What does your classroom look like?
The iTEC Project
I’ve been there in November 2016, while kickstarting the #europeana Pilot, needless to say, I enjoyed the FCLab, that reminded me when I used to have a *personal* classroom in Navelli, devoted to EFL in my primary school, and that was a true Future Classroom Lab: flexible, cozy, messy but scaffolded, rich in stimuli and active corners, digitally enhanced with the ’90 technologies but media literacy ready, because ‘augmented’ by audiovideo, games, PBL, learning to learn opportunities…
2day we’re struggling with fixed environments, with desks arranged in rows owing to ‘safety’ rules, with our IWB always on, but an hopeless desire to go back to those marvelous days, changed by the disasters of policy tinkering and mindless reforms.

The Learning Objectives for this module are:
1. Understand the concept of future classroom scenarios
2. Explore the Future Classroom Toolkit that provides ideas and tools for developing a future classroom scenarios
3. Consider why it is important to involve stakeholders and which stakeholders you would want involve for your process of innovation
4. Discuss a variety of trends and challenges that are impacting on our work as educators
… waiting 4 the Eduvista toolkit revision, I made the most out of this module, thanks mainly to José Luís Fernández webinar “From future classroom to future teaching”, the insightful iTec scenario examples, the challenge of imagining an effective use of the strategies and toolkits given by this MOOC!
