To enable teachers to make informed decisions about content delivery in a world where technology is an expectation in most, if not all, aspects of life. We aim to build a community site which facilitates knowledge sharing, empowers innovation and provides support throughout the educational design and delivery process.
Structure: a framework to support networking and shared good practice
Content: community generated ideas which enable users to make informed choices
Community: a network of users and contributors representing major educational stakeholders
We will create a site including content from two streams; teaching and technology. We have compiled a list of over 100 technologies which we would like to;
show the pedagogical value of;
and collect examples, good and bad, of use;
by asking the ALT community to provide feedback on our templates, collaborate on content creation and add to the diversity of technologies. Participants then become collaborative partners and future beneficiaries.
Our aim is to collaboratively improve on our existing template and generate high quality content in several areas.
Description – what is each technology and what does it do?
Pedagogy – how can this technology be used as part of a learning experience?
Examples – good and bad case studies
Tags – how to make the tool most accessible
The key audience for this project are, of course, teachers. However learning technologists play a vital role in supporting teaching and should be an integral part of the 21st century learning design community. Furthermore they make a good first audience to help build a solid foundation to take to teaching communities. Through ALT we wish to expand our network beyond Imperial College creating a breadth of input and a more experienced community for sharing and collaboration.
