Video 1 - The historical relationship between technology and education
A focus on mobile and social learning to support language and literacy development within a CLIL context.
Technology has shared a long history within education. With each new invention came assurances that teaching and learning would never be the same again. However, during each innovation pedagogy has been noticeable mostly by its absence, and decisions about which types of technology to use have been informed increasingly by behaviour patterns in the consumer space.
This seminar looks at what mobile learning is and how to assess and evaluate its impact on teaching and learning. The presenter also provides teachers with an opportunity to explore alternative pathways around their own professional development.
