T-MEDIA Professional Development Resources
Exploring Teacher Mediation of Subject Learning with ICT: A Multimedia Approach
This site offers links to a free set of multimedia tools for professional development. These unique online resources present video case studies of secondary teachers using interactive whiteboards in English, history and science, and a data projector, laptops and graphing software in mathematics. Each resource covers one topic area but offers more general ideas applicable to using the IWB in other areas, across a range of student ages. A fifth resource includes video clips from all four subjects and illustrates cross-cutting themes.
The materials aim to stimulate debate and reflection rather than present models of ‘best practice’. They include hyperlinks to video clips from the emerging themes, prompts for thinking and discussion, suggested alternative approaches, and analytic commentary from teachers and researchers. They illustrate and question how the technologies can be exploited to enhance learning in real classrooms. The resources can be used by individuals or groups of colleagues / student teachers.
