"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.
