1:30 PM Challenging Assumptions: Key Challenges to Creating a Successful and Engaging Online & e-Learning Environment
In the past decade, mobile technology has advanced at such an exponential rate, it’s now a part and parcel of everyday life. Where these technologies were once thought of distractions- they are now legitimate learning tools for students. However a global study by OECD revealed that technology was not improving academic results for Australian students. This session will explore:
- The assumptions around the use of these technologies, and the behaviours of 'digital natives'
- Providing teachers with ideas about the opportunities and pitfalls in using various technologies for online learning
- Moving away from a “one size fits all” approach to teaching in an online environment
