Learning by Doing
One of the struggles of incorporating technology into teaching practice is the lack of a cohesive theoretical foundation for integration. Technology-mediated education requires understanding a matrix of relationships between the tool, the discipline and the context in which the tool is to be used. Combining these elements allows modern learning theories (social, constructivist, activity) to be fully applied in face-to-face, blended and online learning environments, providing rich opportunities for learners to fully engage the transformative benefits of education. Along with Linda Polin, I authored a chapter examining how the TPACK framework can fulfill the needs of teacher professional development in the growth of technology-enhanced learning.
