Collaborating Effectively on Learning Technology

On 26 June 2014 Diana Laurillard, from the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, delivered a masterclass on how clinical teachers can collaborate effectively of the use of learning technology.

Learning technology is changing rapidly, so it is valuable if teachers in any field can share ideas about how best to use it. The presentation will look at the effective pedagogic forms that have some basis in research and the theories of learning, using the Conversational Framework. It will then look at how these can be instantiated in clinical teaching that makes use of digital tools and resources. Clinical teachers who make use of learning technologies are finding out how they do and do not work, and what makes them work better, but this knowledge usually stays with them. So the presentation will also demonstrate an online tool that has embedded the Conversational Framework to support the sharing of this useful knowledge.

Those wishing to review the tools discussed in this masterclass can access these at the following links:
