Putting the Pedagogy into the Technology

Publishing pupils’ multimedia work to a potentially worldwide audience can motivate children, raise standards in their work, promote creativity and give them a real purpose for their language learning. It can also facilitate assessment for learning opportunities, distance learning, forge international links, and celebrate pupil voice.

However, the plethora of web tools and apps currently available to teachers is overwhelming. So which ones are the most effective for enhancing language learning? One powerful solution to this question is drawing on a personal learning network and crowd sourcing ideas. This is exactly what is happening on a daily basis with the #MFLtwitterati, a trailblazing community from the UK interested in exploring the power of technology such as iPads in the classroom and flipped learning in a positive and collaborative way. This presentation will highlight the importance of having a growth mindset when approaching the use of technology and how we should use it only when it leads to enhancement or transformation in learning not as a bolt on or substitute for traditional pedagogy.
