  1. 1. Technology Enhanced Learning More than just a good idea? Professor Richard NossLondon Knowledge Lab | Institute of Education | University of London Technology Enhanced Learning Research Programme, UK
  2. 2. What do you think of western civilisation?I think it would be a good idea!
  3. 3. •  A high-quality computing education equips pupils to understand and change the world through computational thinking. It develops and requires logical thinking and precision. It combines creativity with rigour… provides a lens through which to understand both natural and artificial systems•  A computing education also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
  4. 4. KS 4All pupils must have the opportunity to studyaspects of information technology andcomputer science at sufficient depth to allowthem to progress to higher levels of study or toa professional career.All pupils should be taught to:  develop their capability, creativity and knowledge in computer science, digital media and information technology  develop and apply their analytic, problem- solving, design, and computational thinking skills.

  8. 8. what does research tell us?what more do we need to know?THIS IS SURPRISINGLYDIFFICULT
  9. 9. HISTORICALLY…we had to build the structureswe had to build the infrastructureswe are at a critical moment

  21. 21. Just because technology can do it… we  don’t  have  to  do  it!     we  have  to  do  it  too!  
  22. 22. explore the complex relationship between technology, knowledgeand learningA DESIGN CHALLENGE (filling the NC void?)
  23. 23. David Hockney“There are gains and losses witheverything. You miss the resistanceof paper a little, but you can get amarvellous flow. So much variety ispossible. You can’t overwork this,because it’s not a real surface. Inwatercolour, for instance, aboutthree layers are the maximum.Beyond that it starts to get muddy.Here you can put anything onanything. You can put a bright,bright blue on top of an intenseyellow”.

  26. 26. the knowledge thatpowers the world isless and lessvisible
  27. 27. global warming…all exisiting scientific dataare “suppositions,allegations, predictions.Numbers provenothing”. Peter Hitchens Climate Change Denier Mail on Sunday
