wk 17 A5 Drawing the threads together

What are your personal thoughts on the relationship between technologies and educational reform? (For example is technology itself a cause of reform or an instrument used to encourage reform?)

I think technology can be a driver for changes in pedagogy, because the can enable learners to interact and communicate in new ways.  I think social constructivism is an example of this where learners can now make use of web 2.0 technologies to construct and create together online.

It can be a fine line between taking advantages of the new technologies and just using technology for the sake of it

What influence do you think the producers and developers of technologies and services have on university decisions about introducing new technologies?

I think developers can have a great influence on the choices made my learning providers, particularly if it is a 2 way conversation and the developers are listening to the needs of the learners and learning providers.
