Week 1 learning summary

What have we learned this week?

  • Neil Selwyn has helped us to consider the importance of purpose as part of effective technology use.
  • The SAMR model has made us think about how frameworks and models can be helpful in navigating the tricky decisions about the effective use of education technologies.
  • Written and video case studies have provided examples of purposeful education technology implementation to support evidence-based teaching and learning.

We’d love to hear about your learning online with the hashtag #FLEducationTech.
