Emerging technologies as cognitive tools for authentic learning


British Journal of Educational Technology Volume 44, Number 4, ISSN 0007-1013 e-ISSN 0007-1013 Publisher: Wiley


Employing emerging technologies in learning is becoming increasingly important as a means to support the development of digital media literacy. Using a theoretical framework of authentic learning and technology as cognitive tools, this paper examined student responses to the infusion of emerging technologies in a large first year teacher education unit over two full iterations, using a design-based research approach. This paper describes the pedagogical context of the intervention, the methodology used, and it presents an analysis of themes emerging from the data relating to the use of emerging technologies.
