Losing momentum? Current challenges in learning and technology
Thursday 14th June 2012
Department of Education, University of Oxford
The Learning and New Technologies Research Group at the University of Oxford Department of Education is holding a one-day conference for doctoral students.
The conference is an opportunity to network, present research and receive feedback from other doctoral students working in a similar area.
The developed world has passed through a period of intense excitement and expectation about the transformative potential for learning of new technologies, such as Web 2.0 and mobile learning, but have these promises led where expected? During this day we will explore more nuanced realities about new technologies and learning current in various settings and contexts. Keynote speakers include Neil Selwyn (Department of Culture, Communications and Media at the Institute of Education, London), Martin Oliver (Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, London) and Avril Loveless (Education Research Centre, University of Brighton).
