Welcome.

Come with me on a journey where we will explore, investigate, manipulate and interact with some familiar and some not so familiar Teacher Delivery Technologies.

On the way ask yourself:-
- how can this tool be used to support what and how students learn?
- does this tool meet individual learning needs?
- does this tool allow student's to develop higher order skills and creativity?

This Blog - Transforming Student Learning aims to comprehensively explore a range of delivery technologies that are presented throughout the FAHE11001 E-Learning courseware. A systematic attempt to develop skills, knowledge and ability that is required to exploit the potential for E-Learning Education will be made evident via regular Blog Posts. To conclude, a reflective synopsis will clearnly indicate which technologies I would use and how I would use them to enhance learning.

Please feel free to be critical of my posts as I work may way through these tools, but be kind as I am only a "Digital Immigrant"! (Prensky, 2001)

With classrooms having limited numbers of computers for example, most classrooms have a video player or access to one. They still serve as a very worthwhile tool to engage students both as a whole class or as collaborative working groups who may be researching a topic for a class project. The following link serves as a great tool to demonstrate making a volcano to a class for a science experiment for lower grades. Videos take the attention away from the teacher and allows the students to focus on instruction from a third party.

Hi Wendy, it is true what you say about videos being a worthwhile tool to engage learners. While most classes do have a video player or have access to one I would hope that by now (being the 21st century) most classrooms have a DVD player or access to one at least. I know I've seen some classes still using videos and VHS. You won't see any in my future classroom :)
