Which of the following statements best describes your general experience of digital technologies?

  • I am comfortable using digital technologies and can quickly learn to use new tools

  • I often encounter problems whilst using digital technologies and find it difficult to learn to use new tools

  • I do not use digital technologies


E learning
“e-learning” general experience of digital technologies?


“E- general experience of digital technologies? Learning can be defined as 'learning facilitated and supported through the use of information and communications technology'. It can cover a spectrum of activities from the use of technology to support learning as part of a ‘blended’ approach (a combination of traditional and e-learning approaches), to learning that is delivered entirely online. Whatever the technology, however, learning is the vital element.”

JISC, 2012


“[In the digital age] learners are no longer seen as passive recipients of knowledge and skills but as active participants in the learning process”

Beetham& Sharpe, 2007


“new culture of learning” passive recipients of knowledge and skills but as active participants in the learning process”

Thomas & Seely-Brown, 2011


“The term ‘technology enhanced learning’ is gaining favour since it emphasises how technology adds value to learning”

JISC, 2009


Technology enables
Technology enables… favour since it emphasises how technology adds value to learning”

  • Technology driving pedagogy – ‘playing with new tools’.

  • Strategy and motivations for engagement.

  • Fear of technology

  • Not enough time to learn new tools

  • Lack of technical support

  • Lack of pedagogic support

  • No evidence of the benefits to staff and students

  • Insufficient resources available

  • Techo-determinism (technology for its own sake)

  • None of the above
