Collaborate - It’s Only Natural

Cooperative, collaborative, conversational learning is well accompanied and supported by the modern technologies available to my learners, so I try to use technology so that it is ubiquitous not only physically in the room through the presence of devices but also virtually, embedded in the pedagogy of the activities that students are carrying out. I attempt to develop and run activities where students are learning ‘with’ the technology, rather than merely ‘from’ it. That is, students may be using the technology as part of an activity with a pedagogical foundation stemming from collaboration; constructing knowledge and developing communities of practice.
