Teacher and technology fused - News - TES

Teacher and technology fused - News - TES:

 "As new technology speeds into the classroom at an unparalleled pace, teachers are having to adapt their methods and practices to keep up. From the ubiquitous interactive whiteboard at the front of the class and the school’s online virtual learning environment, to the smartphones, laptops and tablets used by pupils, technology is driving pedagogical change like never before.

One phrase increasingly used to describe the marriage of traditional teaching practices and the newer online and tech-led methods is “blended learning”. It has been hailed by some educationalists as the 21st-century model for pedagogy because it promises to give pupils more time with individual teachers and enable them to personalise their learning inside and outside school."
