Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In 2004 'Technology, Pedagogy and Education' published a review of literature which framed current understandings of pedagogy and the implications for the use of ICT in learning and teaching in formal educational settings. This article revisits the topic in the light of more recent developments in understandings of pedagogy. It offers three theoretical frameworks for understanding what teachers know, do and believe when using digital media in their practice: pedagogy and design; pedagogy and 'Person-Plus'; and pedagogical reasoning and ICT. Examples of pedagogy and ICT are then illustrated by selected examples of research and related to a model of teacher knoweldge which acknowledges the interaction between context, tools for learning and teaching, and content. The conclusions highlight how an approach to pedagogy which is constructive, interactive and complex is accomplished through praxis, the core of teacher education.
