    What is Digital Pedagogy? “Digital Pedagogy is precisely not about

    using digital technologies for teaching and, rather, about approaching those tools from a critical pedagogical perspective. So, it is as much about using digital tools thoughtfully as it is about deciding when not to use digital tools, and about paying attention to the impact of digital tools on learning.” http://www.digitalpedagogylab.com/hybridped/digitalpedagogy/ digisim

    not easily automated.” Paul LeBlanc - Educause

    “The act of teaching isn’t just imparting what’s in your

    head to a captive audience. Teaching is a performance, it’s reading the room and working it. This is where technology really falls short. Empathy is a key area of difficulty for technology and automation.” Harpreet Purewal - Guardian digisim
  23. 32.

    hands of a great teacher can be transformational.” George Couros digisim

  28. 38.

    “What we’re labeling as ‘distraction,’ some see as a failure

    of adults to see how these kids process information, ....…….. that the label of ‘distraction’ is a judgment of this generation.” Kristen Purcell, the Associate Director for Research at Pew

    “So what do Net Geners want from learning technology? Interactivity—whether

    it is with a computer, a professor, or a classmate. They want it; they crave it.” https://www.educause.edu/research-and-publications/books/educating-net-generation/using-technology-learning-tool-not-just-cool-new-thing digisim

    “I just want the technology to help me do the

    tasks I need to do quickly and efficiently” What our students are telling us. “I use my (smart) phone for everything but wish I could access more university stuff through it” “I like it when staff use technology to make the teaching engaging” digisim
