This week in Flexible learning we are looking at the hot topic of technologies for teaching and learning.

Technologies for learning and teaching are in a constant state of flux. Therefore, it is important for teachers to stay informed about the trends, and be confident about trying new approaches. Technologies such as mobile devices, ePortfolios, and social media (Web 2.0 tools and approaches) are now relatively common terms in education. The Horizon report (2012) underpins this topic so please use this resource as the starting point for your explorations. For this topic you are asked to design a learning activity using a ‘trend’ technology. Since this is a huge area, some resources are suggested, but you need only focus on one specific area in your explorations. For example, mobile devices, or ePortfolios or social media. The technology you choose may be something from the Horizon report, or the other types mentioned here. Six trends in higher education are described in the 2012 Horizon report. Read more about the activities and resources for Technologies on the course wiki.
