Maher, Damian; Schuck, Sandy; Perry, Rachel
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v42 n3 Article 5 p73-90 Mar 2017
This article reports on a study in which teachers, university teacher educators and a software company formed a learning community which provided a mechanism for knowledge exchange regarding pedagogical approaches using mobile technologies. The study employed an interpretivist methodology. The findings indicated that the collaboration promoted reflection on practice and facilitated development of innovative pedagogies. All partners benefited through this knowledge exchange: the teachers developed new approaches and ways of thinking about teaching; the teacher educators gained insights informing their practice and feedback on theory-practice alignment; and the industry partner derived insights on how to support other schools in technology knowledge exchange.
