Technology • Technology, when applied right, has a real impact FD 100 LT 90 FD 200 _ • Technology is NOT the innovation – innovative approaches to learning & teaching SUPPORTED or ENABLED by technology is the innovation • Technology for learning needs to be put into an everyday context – using your own devices, in your own place.
