  2. Putting the 'learning' in elearning: The use of web, mobile and digital technologies to enhance learning and teaching
  3. Confusion 1 Why do we spend a lot of time supporting literacy and numeracy – but take „netracy‟ for granted?
  4. Confusion 2 Why do we ask learners to put away mobile phones/ smart phones while we often moan that we do not teach in classrooms with PCs when we need them or have to wait for ages to book the college‟s suite of laptops?
  5. Confusion 3 Without supporting netracy why do we then bemoan and criticize students who „cut and paste‟ their way around an ever growing and confusing online world?
  6. Confusion 4 Why do we have written exams? At what point in learners‟ lives will they ever have to write like that, for that block of time?...
  7. Confusion 5 … and … why do exam boards then take written scripts and scan them in and digitalize them for markers to share?

  9. Where is the profession with all this? “The lack of pedagogical guidance about integrating tools for collaboration and communication into one‟s classroom or training session leaves educators across educational settings with mounting dilemmas and confusion.” Bonk, C. J. and Cunningham, D. J. (1998) URL:
  10. HOMO ZAPPIENS “Homo Zappiens represents a generation that was born with a PC mouse in its hands and a computer screen as a window to the world. This generation has grown up with technology and learns through computer screens, icons, sound, games, exploration, qu estioning others, and show non-linear learning behaviour…Homo Zappiens have learnt to deal with information overload by clicking and zapping.” Prof. Wim Veen, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
  11. Who are you? Who are your learners? Digital natives? Digital immigrants? Are there other options?
  12. Today‟s students have not just changed incrementally from those of the past, nor simply changed their slang, clothes, body adornments, or styles, as has happened between generations previously. A really big discontinuity has taken place. One might even call it a “singularity” – an event which changes things so fundamentally that there is absolutely no going back. This so- called “singularity” is the arrival and rapid dissemination of digital technology in the last decades of the 20th century. (Prensky, M 2001 From On the Horizon (MCB University Press, Vol. 9 No. 5, October 2001),%20digital%20immigrants%20-%20part1.pdf
  13. “ What should we call these “new” students of today? Some refer to them as the N-[for Net]-gen or D-[for digital]-gen. But the most useful designation I have found for them is Digital Natives. Our students today are all “native speakers” of the digital language of computers, video games and the Internet. So what does that make the rest of us? Those of us who were not born into the digital world but have, at some later point in our lives, become fascinated by and adopted many or most aspects of the new technology are, and always will be compared to them, Digital Immigrants.” (Prensky, M 2001 From On the Horizon (MCB University Press, Vol. 9 No. 5, October 2001),%20digital%20immigrants%20-%20part1.pdf

  21. The „Flipped Classroom‟?
  22. E-Learning 2.0? • The term e-Learning 2.0 is used to refer to new ways of thinking about e-learning inspired by the emergence of Web2.0 technologies and platforms and the rise of social media. • This new e-learning places increased emphasis on social learning and use of social networking and social software such as blogs, wikis, podcasts and virtual worlds such as second life.

  25. Warnings Carr, 1999: “Without appropriate pedagogy, use of high capacity communication services cannot provide significant improvements in learning outcomes. In general, it is the pedagogy that provides for learning, not the technology or the software alone.” Carr, J. (1990) The Future is already Here. URL:

  41. You are required to produce a written answer to the following question: Identify and critically evaluate the adoption of a new or emerging technology to enhance learning in the classroom or beyond.
  42. This module seeks to extend your knowledge of New and Emerging Technologies and how these might be used to develop and enhance teaching and learning in your professional context.
  43. For the purpose of this assignment, „New and Emerging Technologies‟ might be considered to include a wide range of Mobile, Online and Web2.0 tools and platforms: •Learning platforms (MLE/VLE e.g. Moodle or Fronter which are similar to UEL Plus but used by many schools) •Mobile technologies •Podcasts •Survey software (e.g. surveymonkey) •Social Bookmarking (e.g. Diigo) •RSS (using aggregators such as Google Reader) •Wikis (e.g. pbworks) •Google docs •Video conferencing •Performance Analysis software •Digital cameras •Blogs (e.g. Edublog) and microblogging (e.g. Yammer) •Gaming •Music technologies •GPS ...and there will be many others that could be added to this list.
  44. The „new and emerging technology‟ in question that you chose to focus upon for this assignment could be a piece of hardware (such as a video camera or a mobile/smart phone), a Web2.0 tool (such as a wiki or a blog), an online managed environment/platform (such as a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)) or a form of connectivity (such as the use of Geo- Tagging or Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds).
