Changing teacher practices from within classrooms

Lektor Bente Meyer var forsker på Vejle Kommunes projekt iPads i en skole i bevægelse - mine første 100 dage med ipad. Udover forskningsrapporten har Bente Meyer bidraget til konferencer og publikationer om emnet. Senest har hun udgivet artiklen Changing teachers practices from within classrooms - IPads as mediators for change



Artiklen er skrevet på baggrund af indlæg på Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2013. Her i resumé:

The paper focuses on how teachers’ professional development was initiated in connection with a project where iPads were given to seven graders and their teachers for an entire school year. The paper discusses the ways in which the presence of these mobile technologies in classrooms generated new perspectives on teaching and technology as part of teachers’ reflections on and conversations about practice. The paper argues that the ubiquitous presence of technology helps teachers to understand from within their practice how changes in their teaching are both necessary and desirable for pupils. The paper discusses how changes initiated by tablets as mediators of teachers’ practices and reflections on practices can be understood as respectively augmenting and transforming practice.
