Digital Learning in the Classroom Roundtable Discussion
What are effective uses of information and communication technologies (ICTs) that support meaningful learning experiences? How are everyday digital cultures, practices, and identities of students outside of the classroom shaping how instructors and learners think about using traditional, new, and social media? How can we meet the ongoing opportunities and challenges of technology-enhanced education in these rapidly changing classroom environments? These are only a handful of persisting questions regarding best pedagogical practices for using information and communication technologies in the classroom.
As with all things digital, community is an essential aspect to any work, including critical investigation into and examination of best practices for learning with ICT. Join IRDL as we begin to develop the Learning with ICT Special Interest Group, a shared intellectual and research community committed to mobilizing knowledge on issues pertaining to digital learning and 21st century pedagogies in classroom environments.
