To make learning visible: In what way can ICT contribute?
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The overall purpose of this article is to make a contribution to current educational debate about learning tools by exploring theoretical and practical arguments for using ICT in teaching and learning. The article will focus on epistemological, technological, and pedagogical dimensions in relation to ICT. Furthermore, it will emphasize creativity and how ICT can make different skills visible in teaching and learning. Firstly, it draws attention to different models i.e. epistemological and learning models, Academic literacy and Digital literacy as key concepts. Secondly, some practical examples from case studies are given to illuminate how ICT can support pedagogical documentation. Thirdly, it describes work with a web based tool for individual development plans and how this has been developed at Umeå University, Sweden, with the aim of developing participants’ ability to critically reflect on their learning. Finally, the article gives a suggestion for course assignments with ICT integration according to the epistemological and learning models described earlier.
