ContextNMC Horizon report 2016National Forum Cassells report

Pedagogy vs. technologyLearning is the desired outcome and technology is the enabler or enhancer (Kinash, Knight, McClean, 2015)It is a fallacious deterministic notion to state that technology can enable learning (Selwyn, 2012)trying to create pedagogy anew- we should be in the business of locating the new technologies within proven practices and models of teaching. (Beetham & Sharpe, 2014)

Learning DesignPedagogical affordances: design a tool so that it supports activities which are seen as desirable or necessary for learning. (Hammond 2010)design patterns for learning framework, and will examine firstly the problem, the context and the outline a solution.(Maina & Mor 2015, Laurillard 2012)
