Introducing Mobile Technology for Enhancing Teaching and Learning in Bangladesh: Teacher Perspectives
Shohel, M. Mahruf C.; Power, Tom
Open Learning, v25 n3 p201-215 Nov 2010
This paper reviews the themes emerging from Bangladeshi teachers' experiences of taking part in the initial research and the development stage of a professional development programme they were involved with. The Secondary Teaching and Learning Programme is an information and communications technologies-enhanced supported open distance learning programme of professional development in English-language teaching. This paper presents evidence arising from semi-structured interviews carried out with teachers from a pre-pilot study for the English in Action project. The teachers participating in this study reflect upon six months' experience of using professional development materials (course material of audio podcasts enhanced with text and images; videos of classroom practice; audio of classroom language) and classroom resources (audio recordings of text-book reading passages, songs, poems and stories), all accessed via portable digital media players (iPods).
