Digital Technology in Educational Settings
A workshop for educators based in Hanoi. Wednesday 8th May @ the Eastern & Oriental Tea House & Coffee Parlour, 26 Quang An St, Tay Ho. Register here
Digital technologies are often presented as solutions that can simply be transported from one context to another that solve problems and enhance student outcomes. In this presentation Dr Michael Phillips will argue that such ‘silicon bullet’ models inevitably miss their target. In contrast, Michael will introduce technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) as a way of understanding the ways expert teachers use digital technologies. Furthermore, Michael will provide insights into the ways in which individual schools and teachers can enhance powerful technology practices including Augmented Reality.
