ThingLink joins Active Learning Alliance to develop future learning environments
Active Learning Alliance is a group of companies aiming to develop new kinds of holistic learning solutions for educational institutions in change. The members of the alliance work together to create customized services combining physical space, virtual space, as well as supporting technologies and materials in an environment that encourages creative problem solving and collaboration. Founders of Active Learning Alliance include Samsung Electronics, Isku Interior Oy, and Edutukku Oy. Product and service providers include Qroom Oy, Seppo.io, ThingLink, Treston, eOppi, Samsung Service and Beiz.
Key to collaboration is the concept of a “Learning Lab”, a physical space where member companies develop and test new services for active learning. In 2016 Active Learning Alliance is planning to open and operate a Learning Lab in seven cities in Finland: Espoo, Lahti, Tampere, Turku, Jyväskylä, Kuopio and Oulu. Located at the facilities of Isku Interiors, Learning Labs also work as meeting, conference and co-working spaces for the member organisations and their clients.
The same way learners in today’s schools construct knowledge for themselves, and combine different kinds of resources from different sources, developers of learning solutions also need to collaborate and learn from each other. We are inspired to be a member of the Active Learning Alliance and look forward to creating engaging demos about new digital learning environments in 2016!
