AVAILABLE MONDAY WEEK 2
Educational Technologies represent change, and are routinely used to effect other changes, particularly with regards to approaches to teaching - pedagogy.
Rhetoric that pedagogy should inform the use of technology is often cited but rarely followed. Educational Technologies are tools, and can certainly improve various pedagogical approaches, for example the use of slow motion video in physical education, remote data capture in science, computer game making as an authoring genre in english, etc. but too often, a new technology is deployed and a search made for how to use it in the curriculum, rather than educators having a clear understanding of the pedagogical approach the intend, and then identifying the technologies that will benefit this.
