Nominally this presentation is about Technology, or Technology Enhanced Learning. However, one of the things that has been playing in the heads of quite a few people at the moment is the idea that technology should not have a capital T. We have thankfully already seen a increase in the number of people dropping terms like e-learning (learning is just learning, not e- not m- and especially not i-).Noticing this trend there as been a bit of a backlash, and we find a group of ‘technorati’ who think that adding 2.0 as suffix, learning 2.0, lecture 2.0 etc is the new ‘black’. These cyber-bullies are, in my opinion, fighting the last stand of a educational separatist movement that had it’s roots in the surge in technology innovation in the early 90’ s and is now on it’s last legs as we start to think about education in a post digital environment.I really want to focus on the role that technology will play in 3 – 5 years, but in a lot of innovative institutions we’re starting to see it now.

But do they think of it as technology Technology is essential in my life But it isn’t central
This is a post digital approach Our Graduates need to see that technology is a tool That it is integrated into our academic practice so that they can treat it as a tool Technology is essential to HE, if you can’t engage with it you need to take a long look in the mirror, but that doesn’t mean that technology is central to your practice.
