Purposeful technology use - case studies
Now that you’ve engaged with research evidence and key debates about how technology can be used in practice, we invite you to explore a range of case studies.
These case studies focus on purposeful technology use to support the presentation of new ideas, to develop learning that sticks, and to enable effective assessment and feedback; topics we’ll explore in more depth in each of the forthcoming weeks of the course.
You don’t need to explore them all; you may wish to choose just one or two to spend your time on this week (you can always return to the other case studies at a later date).
As you read, consider what the case study reveals about the importance of purposeful use of education technologies.
The case studies in this section are:
- Interweaving traditional and digital approaches - In this article, we hear how a secondary school has introduced technology to support effective teaching.
- Modelling learning using a visualiser - In this video, we see how a primary teacher makes use of a simple piece of technology to structure and model learning.
- Technology for learning that sticks - In this video, we hear about education technologies being used in a variety of ways to support pupils’ learning through retrieval and elaboration.
- Digitising effective feedback - In this article, we hear about how using digital approaches to feedback in a primary school has reduced teacher workload.
