How to tackle the dispersion of tools
Timothy SKELTON, Lead Practitioner: eLearning at New College Durham
Peter ROBERTS, E-learning systems manager Goldsmiths University of London
Nowadays, EdTech tools are in great and diverse supply, but we must be careful not to consider them ‘just one more thing to do’. When implemented well, EdTech tools are an inseparable thread woven throughout the teaching and learning process. During this session, we will discuss how to tackle the dispersion of EdTech tools to ultimately drive improvements in educational outcomes.
