Technologies Education for the Primary Years

This new text helps student teachers prepare to teach effectively in technologies education in primary school classrooms. Part A of the book provides the context of technologies education and the new Australian Curriculum: Technologies. Introductory chapters discuss what ‘technology’ is and its role in human society, emphasising the idea of technology as a process rather than a product. Chapters also examine why technologies education is important, how it relates to other fields such as science and engineering, and how it has changed over the years. Part B then focuses on key concepts and elements in teaching technologies to primary students. Topics covered include: creativity and the design process; suitable pedagogies for technologies education; planning; assessment; and where to find appropriate resources. The final part of the book gives an overview of core concepts within the ‘Design and technologies’ and ‘Digital technologies’ subjects of this learning area within the Australian Curriculum: Technologies.

Educational Technologies in Medical and Health Sciences Education

This evidence-packed guide explores the growing importance of new technologies and situated learning in the vanguard of medical and health sciences education, backed by real-world clinical applications. Its dual emphasis on problem-based learning (PBL) and applied learning is reflected in the range of author perspectives, from understanding how technologies engage learners to implications for program design. Innovations covered range from wider and more targeted use of mobile devices and electronic medical records to video cases and virtual patients, in clinical contexts from family practice to specialized surgery. At the same time, chapters detail both the necessary hardware for putting these systems into place and the software needed to make them accessible to learners. Among the featured topics: Technology and group processes in PBL: An ethnographic study. What is real? Using problem-based learning in virtual worlds. Are Wikipedia articles reliable learning resources in PBL curricula? Utilizing mobile electronic health records in clinical education. Measuring emotions in medicine: methodological and technological advances within authentic medical learning environments. The deteriorating patient smartphone app: towards serious game design. Medical/health sciences educators and researchers in educational technology will look to Educational Technologies in Medical and Health Sciences Education to pinpoint current and future trends in an ever-important field.

New Digital Technology in Education

This book addresses the issues confronting educators in the integration of digital technologies into their teaching and their students’ learning. Such issues include a skepticism of the added value of technology to educational learning outcomes, the perception of the requirement to keep up with the fast pace of technological innovation, a lack of knowledge of affordable educational digital tools and a lack of understanding of pedagogical strategies to embrace digital technologies in their teaching. This book presents theoretical perspectives of learning and teaching today’s digital students with technology and propose a pragmatic and sustainable framework for teachers’ professional learning to embed digital technologies into their repertoire of teaching strategies in a systematic, coherent and comfortable manner so that technology integration becomes an almost effortless pedagogy in their day-to-day teaching. The materials in this book are comprised of original and innovative contributions, including empirical data, to existing scholarship in this field. Examples of pedagogical possibilities that are both new and currently practised across a range of teaching contexts are featured. ​
