The Use of Learning Platforms to Organise Learning in English Primary and Secondary Schools
Jewitt, Carey; Clark, Wilma; Hadjithoma-Garstka, Christina
Learning, Media and Technology, v36 n4 p335-348 2011
This paper reports on the use and potentials of Learning Platform (LP) technologies for organising learning in English primary and secondary schools. It reports on the findings of qualitative research on the benefits of LPs based on data from case studies in 12 "early adopting" English primary and secondary schools. The paper reports findings on the potential of LPs to enhance student access to a broad range of learning resources, to increase opportunities for independent and personalised learning, to support opportunities for collaborative learning and to improve student processes of reflecting on and assessing their learning. The paper concludes by drawing out some of the pedagogic implications from these findings and with a brief summary of the emerging conditions associated with the effective use of LPs to support and organise learning.
