Collaborative Pattern Language Representation of Designs for Learning
2016 (English)In: 5th International Conference on Designs for Learning, Aalborg Universitetsforlag , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)Text
In the article we present how teachers by use of design patterns in a participatory design process have captured their experiences of using information technology in teaching. Focus in the design patterns shifted over time from focusing difficulties with technology and proposed solutions to these to didactic and pedagogical aspects of technology use in teaching and learning. A thematic analysis of the teachers’ patterns and pattern languages building on the themes “context of the teacher”, “context of the pupils” and “technology”, is presented. Writing of design patterns helped teachers see relations and dependencies between problems and solutions that would otherwise be difficult to see while the writing of the design patterns simultaneously counted as doing designs for learning.
