Conference: Hi-tech, lo-tech, no-tech: learning technologies in practice
Keynote title: Teaching in the 21st Century: new approaches in the digital age
This keynote talk aims to provide a ‘snap-shot’ of TELL at this key moment in time, and will be divided in five parts. Part one will provide the essential background to TELL, focus on ‘innovation’ and update participants on many of the latest developments in hardware and software. Part two will critically analysis a number of key technologies and approaches, such as the interactive whiteboard and M-Learning (mobile learning). Part three will explore some continuing debates in this area. Part four will describe new pedagogical approaches and attempt to identify ‘best practice’ for students, language teachers and academic managers. The final part looks ahead at what lies just beyond the horizon. Participants will leave with an overview of digital developments, ideas on the emerging new pedagogies, and insights into the future.
