Modern Learning Environments

We have all been talking about Modern Learning Environments (MLE). Here are some thoughts taken from the Ministry of Education Website, Core education and Ed Talks. I found these inspiring. I hope they promote discussion and reflection.
Modern Learning Environment (MLE)
What is a modern learning environment?
A modern learning environment can be described as physical, social and pedagogical (teaching knowledge) context in which learning is intended to occur.
The use of the word modern implies characteristics that are contemporary or ‘fit for purpose in the current time’ Thus, a modern learning environment is one that reflects and supports what is current in terms of pedagogical practice.(teaching and learning practice.
Modern learning environment is one that can evolve and adapt as educational practices evolve and change – thus remaining modern and future focused.
