Setting the context

June 5, 2009

Teaching and learning is one of those areas where there is a clear divide in the people that ‘make up the machine’. There is the side that is suited to their ways and fully resists any change to them and those who will embrace the latest and greatest to further their goals. In recent years, there has been an influx of new ways to facilitate teaching and learning in almost every sector and this is primarily being done with the use of widely available on and off-line technologies.

My passion as an editor of this fledgling blog is to bring into the sphere, technology that really can make a difference. Trained as many things within the education sector and a background in corporate ICT technologies deployment and development, I have always seen a natural link between emerging technologies and learning. What I want to bring to the table is a series of case studies and testimonials from around the world, coupled with my own findings on what is effective and how to make it that way.

I have wanted to do something like this for a while and have hopes that it can be a renowned repository for people looking to see how teaching and learning is being furthered with technology.

Please do comment, twitter and email to this blog and lets get a conversation going. I would love to hear some of your stories and ideas on this subject, so please do get in touch.
