Tablets in teaching - Literature review published

In preparation of the development of the scenarios, the e-Learning Foundation has carried out a literature review. This first version of the literature review concentrates on identifying evidence related to the key themes and priorities identified by policy makers in the beginning of the project. The idea is to establish an evidence base around the core topics of the pedagogical scenarios, which will be implemented by teachers in all countries during the first set of pilots to be run from November 2013 until April 2014. The core topics identified are:

  • Personalisation: e.g. where the project explores how technology-based learning resources can be organised and modified to overcome learning barriers for individual learners and maximise their learning outcomes.
  • Content creation: e.g. where the project explores how teachers and learners have migrated from consumers of content to creators, including apps, multi-media and other formats.
  • Flipped Classroom: e.g. where direct instruction is delivered outside the group learning space/classroom and teachers then use in-class time to actively engage students in the learning process and provide them with personalised support. This approach can be a powerful element of a Personalisation strategy (see above).
  • Collaborative work: e.g. where the project explores how collaborative learning involves two or more people co-operating in a learning experience to share and contribute to each member's understanding of a topic and to complete a given task.
  • Assessment: e.g. where the project explores how teachers and learners can generate and receive feedback on their progress through the means of technology
