Light Offering on the value of learning technologies

Posted by jturner56 on April 15, 2012

This week my school finalised its Digital Infusion plan for the next period. Central to this was the vision that: Digital technologies enable opportunities for Greater Active Student Learning that is valued, visible, connected and progressive

This vision will support the practical developments including student eportfolios, online learning, teacher learning, student active support in class, and resource acquisition and implementation.

A public version is available at In support of this  a Timeline of Implementation, Role responsibilities, and Review/Evaluation mechanisms have also been developed.

Tamara Ball of the University of California highlights the research justification for this vision in her Understanding: the Purpose of Learning which reports on Case’s 1996 research into changes in learning and teaching over recent times and which highlights the active nature of learning, the importance of the teaching and social context, and the importance of interest and engagement.
