Tech 4T&L Overview


Technology 4 Teaching & Learning [Tech4T&L] is an Open Educational Resource that was created in 2007 to explore the possibilities of using Information Communication Technologies [ICTs], Web 2.0 - Social Media in educational practice. It reflects the primary author's ongoing collaborative inquiry with pre-service, in-service, faculty and educators across P-21 and practitioner settings. This OER uses a content wiki structure to provide topical resources, course outlines, learning activities, exemplars, and readings related to the full spectrum of technology integration. In the spirit of the Open Movement, stakeholders are invited to both access and contribute to the ongoing evolution of this OER.

Evolution of this Open Educational Resource

This Googlesite space represents the evolution of my experiences teaching online, starting from Blackboard in 2006 into what is now a collaborative 
Virtual Learning Environments [VLE]. This move away from the traditional VLE into Web 2.0 [starting with a wiki and then migrating to a Googlesite] enabled me to link together a number of different applications [see visual on the left] and establish an Open Educational Resource that could be accessible outside of the institutional walls. Over the years, this space has iteratively evolved into a central hub or portal for my courses in educational technology, and has increasingly become maintained with the assistance of students as they conduct research and projects on how to effectively integrate technology for teaching and learning.
