The TALOE consortium announces its sixth webinar entitled “Mind the Gap! Perceptual differences and learning“, about the different gaps teachers and students face every day generational gaps, gaps in understanding, expectation gaps, gaps in literacy, intention gaps which can be widened or narrowed by using technology. This session will be part of the TALOE webinar series Talks on e-assessment and learning outcomes.
The lecturer will be Steve Wheeler, associate professor of Learning Technology in Plymouth Institute of Education, Plymouth University. He believes that as educators in the digital age need to be vigilant when there are gaps: generational gaps, gaps in understanding, expectation gaps, gaps in literacy, and intention gaps, especially when assessing learning. It is necessary to listen more to the students, but when technology is used, some gaps can be widened or narrowed depending on their deployment. In this presentation he will explore some of the gaps educators encounter, including the generational differences, transactional distances and digital divides encountered every day. He will discuss flipped roles, digital assessment and technology enhanced learning, with special reference to digital literacies and skills for contemporary society.
