Modelling Technology: Tack, Skal, Ikea

Published : 2013


Based on learning typical Swedish words the idea of a Tack, skål, IKEA – session came up during a conference about Technology Enhanced Learning. It may have started with simple words but soon the discussions went on towards a common interest for how to really start using technology for teaching and learning. Based upon their experiences Cochrane and Antonczak believe that teachers must begin by effectively modelling the pedagogical use of new technologies to their students (Cochrane & Antonczak, 2013;Cochrane, 2012). Modelling technology is here personified by Thom, Laurent and their colleagues.
