Embedded Technology

Great to see some definitions of what we mean by TEL and Embedded Technology. I would really like some examples here so I am sure I am clear on the distinction being made. I think the example of TEL that I have provided is ok but I would like it checked and for someone to have a go at an example of Embedded Technology use as I am not sure I really get it. Thanks lots.

On iPad so hard to put in much text. Let's discuss in next team meeting.

Key distinction is does it change the content of what you are teaching, including skills as well as info. If it does then it's embedded. Many grey areas where change in content is accompanied by (or necessitates) change in pedagogy.

It'd be great to talk about maths here given that it is often an area where collaborative pedagogy (around the computer especially) can be 'lost', maybe ref to some specific tools/projects (, planet math, virtual math teams, etc.) but also how ICT which schools will standardly have available can be used to support high qual pedagogy...

Hi Sjgknight: Aderemi and I are planning to add a few examples like this for each topic (mathematics and STEM especially included). For PlanetMath, the collaborative aspect is key (in my opinion); also for VMT. As to how collaboration relates to "high quality pedagogy", I think that's really good question! I've thought about this a lot but I don't have final conclusions (yet), though there are lots of notes and ideas. One page that we just posted in the Peeragogy project is specifically about "K-12" stuff, but more from the point of view of teachers than students (or teachers+students). I'd love to see another essay or two that fleshes out the picture in these regards... Arided 18:49, 9 October 2012 (BST)
Mair 02:24, 12 October 2012 (BST) Another good Math site is Conquer Maths. My sister home-schools her children and has found this great for her son who doesn't particularly like having a 'live' teacher. Khan Academy has resources for Maths (and other subjects). Again video based with some really good teachers, in my opinion. One of the difficulties of teaching Maths live online is the need to write symbols / algebra / formulae at a reasonable speed. This can be achieved with a shared on-line whiteboard and tablet attachment. However, unless students have a tablet too they have to dictate what they want to write to the tutor.

Mair 20:22, 5 November 2012 (GMT) Should this page be headed 'Embedded Technology' or 'Technology across the Curriculum' or even 'Technology Embedded across the Curriculum' in line with decision to reserve ICT to refer to the subject ICT alone? (See meeting notes for 5th November). I suspect the second or third options will be easier for non-experts to recognise.

Mair 20:31, 5 November 2012 (GMT) Though this page does list items in the core curriculum, it omits some exam subjects offered at GCSE and A level and in the Baccalaureate. I would like to find a way to include these as I would like us to have links to subject specific pages with research and resources in those areas on each. I would specifically like there to be a place for Classics subjects (Classical Languages, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History. I will give some thought as to how we might structure this. Anyone else got ideas?
