MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am passionately enthusiastic about learning/ teaching, assessment and technology, and have a strong belief regarding its potential for more effective use in education.
New areas of technology are being identified and explored then developed, and their potential uses scrutinized in detail. Of course progression is seldom easy, but when achieved it can be both productive and exciting. Within this context it is valuable to consider whether the same is also generally true in education. Indeed, it is clear that the use of appropriate technology is becoming a ever more present feature of teaching and learning. Importantly, it has been argued by many educators that web technologies are built to interact with and create learning experiences rather than just find information (Allen & Seaman, 2005 and O’Reilly, 2005). Indeed it has been highlighted that one of the greatest merits of e-learning tools is its flexibility in space and time (Ally, 2004). In this spirit many technologies have been taken into consideration to illustrate both their challenges and merits in enhancing and augmenting learning experience. I would like to depict some of these technologies and make a difference.
