Yannis Dimitriadis, Luis Pablo Prieto and Sara Villagrá-Sobrin: Designing for enactment: Multi-level patterns and routines in teacher practice
Cloud created by:

Although there exist many approaches and frameworks for the design of learning activities, from different theoretical and pedagogical standpoints, very few of them take into account the fine-grained, contextual logistics that are required to enact those designs in an authentic classroom. These enactment aspects, especially when ICT and multiple collaboration levels are in play, have been termed "orchestration" in the recent years. This paper proposes an approach for learning design based on the concept of patterns of different levels, that tries to address the orchestration of activities by teachers in authentic classrooms. This approach does not enforce a theoretical or pedagogical point of view, and it may be thought of as a complement to other LD approaches, in order to make them fitter for its comprehension and enactment by teachers in authentic situations.
