ENSURING QUALITY IN THE CLASSROOM: EVALUATING TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING

ENSURING QUALITY IN THE CLASSROOM: EVALUATING TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING
Iwona Mokwa-Tarnowska (Poland)
 
Abstract: Web 2.0 and 3.0 tools can be incredibly successful in teaching and learning at the tertiary level when they are used to support traditional in-class activities. Providing students with the chance to use technologies pervasive in their non-academic lives can result in better educational outcomes. Technology-enhanced programmes can also better prepare students for self-directed lifelong learning that will enlarge their opportunities in their future workplace. Thus, it can be assumed that designing academic classes not only around participants’ preferences, needs and interests, but also around useful technologies will improve the quality of education. The ideas presented above will be supported by students’ opinions and attitudes expressed in surveys.
Keywords: web-enhanced learning, Web 2.0 tools, student-centred teaching, e-learning
