New publication on learning technology from the Institute of Education

"Learning, context and the role of technology" is based on the inaugural professorial lecture of Professor Rosemary Luckin. It reviews twenty-first-century developments in technology, education and design which make it possible for learners to decide how, where and with whom they learn. Arguing that current technology-rich learning development models need further work in order to truly enable and engage learners. It also discusses the empirical grounding of a new model: the Ecology of Resources model of context. This offers the foundation for a design framework to support the development of technology-rich learning, to prepare learners to be able to take full advantage of all the resources available to them.

The booklet costs just 5 and can be obtained by contacting Hammicks Education Bookshop at 020 7612 6050 or More information can also be found on the IOE Publications website:
