Many colleagues will know that Moodle is the University’s Learning Management System of choice. Moodle is a potentially powerful tool for teachers to create rich, rewarding and engaging e-learning experiences. However, Moodle does not do so quite well when we begin to think of students as authors and architects of their learning.
In this seminar we will present Google Applications for Education (GAFE) and discuss the potential of GAFE for giving students spaces engage in learning on their terms and in an environment over which they have control. The seminar will consist of two parts. In part one Iain Doherty will provide an overview of GAFE and present a theoretical perspective on the importance of students having control over their learning. In part two Nicky Ng will provide practical examples of how GAFE might be used in teaching and learning.
