Teaching English with Technology
Technology and Learning
"Despite widespread acceptance of technology in the classroom, there is little empirical research on the effectiveness of students' use of technology in enhancing their learning. To date, studies suggest that students perceive technology to be a useful learning tool; however, research has not linked the use of technology to actual student performance measures. In this study, the authors examined the degree to which technology enhanced actual student learning and whether individual characteristics of the student population moderated this relationship. The results suggest that the incorporation of technology in the classroom does enhance actual student learning and that this relationship is moderated by student characteristics."
Krentler & Willis-Flurry (2005: 316).
Uses of Technology in Education
One view of Learning: Sociocultural Theory
All learning has its genesis in historically situated social practices.
Learning involves a movement from social regulation towards self-regulation.
Self-regulation is made possible by the use of tools (psychological or material) that mediate the internalization of meaning.
Learning is made possible through mediation.
Learning precedes development.
Social interaction is the basis of both learning and development. It is through social interaction that scaffolding is made possible.
The context is which interaction occurs is of utmost importance.
Diaz Maggioli (2012)
