There is a crisis of expectation in relation to educational technology. This is sometimes interpreted as a failure of academic researchers to disseminate their work to educational practitioners. However, another interpretation dwells on the lack of vision characterising such research. Because teachers often encounter research most intensely during their own pre‐service and in‐service education, we review academic research here through a snapshot of output from 10 leading university Education dep...

ABSTRACTThe PowerPoint-assisted lecture (slide-lecture) is a common lecturing approach in higher education, in spite of much criticism of its use. Its popularity is facilitated by its affordances for multimodal instructional design, e.g. text with images and speech. Little is known about the integration of different semiotic modalities within the instructional communication practices of slide-lectures nor the learning conditions that they create. Given that text bulletpoints are ubiquitous in sl...

Abstract Vocabulary for describing the structures, roles, and relationships characteristic of traditional, or ‘offline’, education has been seamlessly applied to the designs of ‘online’ education. One example is the lecture, delivered as a video recording. The purpose of this research is to consider the concept of ‘lecture’ as realized in both offline and online contexts. We explore how media differences entail different student experiences and how these differences relate to design decisions as...

There is widespread enthusiasm for 1:1 computing in education. Recognizing that secure innovation of educational practice should be built upon contextual sensitivity, this article reported two case studies anticipating the potential development of 1:1 classes in the particular cultural context of China. The first case described how the new technology of e-Textbooks could align with a tradition where the textbook is central to teaching practice. A science teacher used the e-Textbook to design his...

Within this chapter we provide an overview of the range of theories of learning that have been harnessed within the design and development of TEL environments. We start by aligning the history of TEL with the history of learning theory, from behaviourism to information processing, to the rise of constructivism, to a turn to the social and the cultural. We discuss the behaviourist, cognitivist, constructivist and socio-cultural perspectives as “grand theories”, but argue that such theories do not...

This chapter explores recent encouragement to cultivate in students a sensitivity towards the “multimodal” nature of human communication. We consider what this means for educational practice and, in particular, how such an imperative might be addressed with digital tools. In particular we report a field study of secondary school students creating narrated photographs to characterise their local community and to construct sequences in the style of graphic novels. Although students were well engag...

Common visions of online education entail radically re-configuring the experience of learning: a technological displacement from the spatial order of classrooms into the more diffuse arena of digital networks. One assumption seems to be that the very spatial order of classrooms creates an undesirably rigid sense of place for schooling, one that is depressingly impervious to change; and that the attendant solution is to escape the realm of the ‘physical’ altogether – into an online realm more sup...
