    19. 19. Theories & Perspectives‘Many teachers resist being taught to use technology. This alsomakes sense – teachers should resist, because it is not they whoshould be using the technology to teach students, but rather theirstudents who should be using it, as tools to teach themselves.The teacher’s role should not be a technological one, but anintellectual one – to provide the students with context, qualityassurance, and individualized help.(Of course, those teachers who love technology are free to learnand use it.)’ MARK PRENSKY (2008)

    28. 28. Learning to Change - changing to learn The learner-centred approach allows learners to develop problem-solving skills and learn by doing rather than by being told. !Learners should be allowed to construct knowledge, rather than passively receive knowledge through instruction. Learners learn best when they can contextualize what they learn for immediate application Learners interpret information according to their personal reality, and they learn by observation, processing, and interpretation.
    29. 29. Learning to Change - changing to learn !"#$%&$()*+*,$$•  Learning should be project-based, allowing learners to experience the world by doing things, rather than passively receiving information•  Use active learning strategies that allow learners to " summarize what they learn and develop critical thinking skills"•  Embedquestions throughout the ICT based activity to encourage learners to reflect on and process information•  Use blogs (personal online journals) and wikis (collaborativeonline documents) to encourage and develop personal andcollective reflections on the activity
