This research is exploring how emerging technologies are impacting teaching pedagogy and whether these technologies are nurturing higher order thinking in secondary schools in Australia. Technology in education has been identified as a 'wicked problem' (P. Mishra & Koehler, 2008) and a conundrum (Arntzen, 2008). It has been described as an…

Hall, Stephen J.; Walsh, Christopher S. – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2015

Thornton, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
In this paper I seek to critique pervasive notions of what counts in mathematics education using Heidegger's notion of the technological enframing. I suggest that early childhood and schooling have become technologies in themselves, casting students and teachers as part of the standing reserve within the inexorable drive for economic advancement.…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Lowrie, Tom – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2012
Drawing from Gee's learning principles developed from the digital games environment, we provide a critical analysis of the difference between using these principles in a literacy environment as opposed to a mathematical environment. Using stimulated recall, primary school-aged students played with a number of contemporary digital games. Feedback…

McNaught, Carmel – 2002
The paper explores the environment of intense change that characterizes most Australian universities (and indeed universities in much of the world).

Palmer, W. P. – Online Submission, 1997
This paper relates to some thoughts about the very different access to communication that those living in developing countries have as compared with those living in developed countries. I advocate using information technology in within my own teaching in Australia, yet from my experiences in developing countries, I know how limited access to any…

In recent years there have been substantial changes in the way in which education is structured, financed, and managed in Australia. The move towards more self-management in schools, is now operating in the Australian school systems. Similar changes have been occurring in other countries, spurred on, by the governments' desire to save money. In…

Townsend, Tony – 1997
The new government of the state of Victoria (Australia) announced its "Schools of the Future" program in 1993. The emphasis on the role of the community in education and self-management by schools seemed promising for the quality of education in the state, but after 3 years of implementation, the reality does not match the rhetoric of…

Townsend, Tony – 1997
In all states of Australia, the move toward decentralization of education seems to have gained momentum. This is particularly true in Victoria, where the government's "Schools of the Future" program declared the importance of local community control of schools. Recent research, however, indicates that after 3 years, the reality of this…

Townsend, Tony – 1998
The international trend toward the devolution of many decisions and responsibilities for managing schools to the schools themselves is a powerful influence changing the understanding of educational leadership. This trend is also apparent in Australia, where there has been substantial change in the way schools are structured, financed, and managed.…
