Day 2 Mobile Technologies in Edinburgh

Day 2 of the mobile technologies bootcamp in Edinburgh and a fascinating presentation by Sean O’Gradhaigh, from the University of Ireland, about the use of mobile technologies in ITE.

– don’t just transmit knowledge

– lecturing is pointless in that in terms of learning styles it is effective with a minority of your audience

– always ask why you are using technology and what value it adds

– video is the worst medium for learning unless you build in interaction

– if you create your own content you understand it

– created content is personalised content

– if your teaching is based around a product that product will be out of date in 6 months

– it’s about pedagogy and longevity

– as educators we repurpose technology
