The use of technology to enhance learning and deliver teaching has been buoyed by digital pioneers and enthusiasts and has been given momentum through changes in policy at a strategic level, but for many working in learning and teaching it can still be a case of preaching to the converted. For those of us working in learning technology, the challenge can be how do we go beyond the foundations laid by those who are willing and able to try to institute change across the board when it comes to embedding technology consistently in all aspects of learning, teaching and assessment? This Tweetchat will seek to debate this issue and to share approaches that can go beyond the work and interest of so-called digital natives. It will also look to encourage discussion about ways that we can try to overcome obstacles that exist when it comes to extending the impact of learning technology and its reach. It will commence with an opportunity for all those who attend the session to give their name, role, and institution. It will address a number of key questions during the 30-minute session and these are as follows:
- Q1 What has been your experience of encouraging others to introduce technology in their teaching and learning approaches?
- Q2 How do you share and promote good practice of technology that you see being used to enhance learning, teaching and/or assessment?
- Q3 How can we as professionals working in learning technology extend our impact and reach to those who are not enthusiastic about its use?
- Q4 Identify one tool that you would recommend to someone new to using technology for facilitating learning through teaching and/or assessment?
- Q5 What do you see as the next big challenge for those of us working to encourage the use of technology in learning?
