Welcome to NORDITEL 2010!
1st Nordic Symposium on Technology Enhanced Learning, NORDITEL, 26-27 August 2010 at Linnaeus University.
As technology develops and evolves it changes what we can do and where we can do it. People change work, learning, and entertainment practices on account of technology. Technology in support of teaching and learning is no different. This is especially true when the Internet, social media and distributed and mobile technologies are taken into consideration. These emerging technological landscapes are starting to transform the ways in which we teach and learn.
Currently, numerous scholars claim that the majority of educational institutions ignore the overwhelming presence that mobile technologies and social media have in children’s and young people’s life and argue that these technological developments might be integrated into everyday educational practices since they are transforming and defining literate acts and language in profound ways that affect learning. Thus, a crucial challenge for the educational community is to provide teachers and educators with tools and methods that can help them in their efforts to cope with the changes that these new technological developments introduce to our society.
