Qatar Lecture: Engaging teachers with e-Content

Kevin Burden will be describing the relevance of the DiAL-e framework and related work to ICT in the schools sector during an invited lecture at the 4th Exploring ICT in Education conference in Qatar 16-18 April 2011. Entitled  "If you build it they will come: Engaging teachers with e-Content", Kevin will consider the vast amount of digital content already available for teachers and students in schools and the limited evidence to suggest it is being used effectively by teachers to support and enhance student learning in ways which are deep rather than superficial. He suggests teachers need a clear and practical model for using digital content in ways which are pedagogically sound and principled. The Digital Artefacts for Learner Engagement framework (DiAL-e) is a model which was designed for just this purpose and has since been used by teachers and lecturers across and beyond the UK.
