EdTech: Technology, personalisation and effective learning

4.7    

Technology makes meaningful personalisation a practical reality.

Assistive technology, with materials and resources designed for accessibility and inclusion provides the essential foundations to support learners with a disability or learning disadvantage.

This module looks at the ways in which research based modern instructional theories can ensure that we apply them in the best way to deliver effective learning.

Adopting
Aim

This module shows you how good pedagogy is an essential component of effective learning.

Objective

After completing this module, you will be able to:
- apply good pedagogical practice to the support of personalised learning
- use technology to deliver effective and inclusive learning instruction.

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the EdTech component - F1 : Accessibility

  • Provide equitable access to appropriate digital technologies and resources, e.g. ensuring that all learners have access to the digital technologies used.
  • Select and use digital strategies which respond to the learner's digital context, e.g. contextual constraints to their technology use (e.g. availability, institutional restrictions - offender learning, work based learning), competences, expectations, attitudes, misconceptions and misuses.
  • Use digital technologies and strategies, e.g. assistive technologies, designed for learners' in need of special support (e.g. learners with physical or mental constraints; learners with learning disorders).
  • Consider and respond to potential accessibility issues when selecting, modifying or creating digital resources and to provide alternative or compensatory tools or approaches for learners with special needs.
  • Use design principles for increasing accessibility for the resources and digital environments used in teaching.
  • Continuously monitor and reflect on the suitability of the measures implemented to improve accessibility and adapt strategies accordingly.
