Supporting the teacher as innovative learning designer
Diana Laurillard’s Wednesday plenary session at IATEFL focussed on supporting the teacher as an innovative learning designer. She emphasised the importance of changing the way in which the world of education uses technology and giving teachers the tools they need to do this effectively.
The key message that stuck out from this session was that teaching using technology should not be about the transmission of content to students, it should be about engaging students in active learning. Watch the full plenary here:
