How should our pedagogy keep up with rapidly changing technology?
The place and potential of e-learning technology in education is in a state of constant development. Previously 'cutting edge' articles and books for teachers are quickly obsolete, as these resources, written for the age of Myspace and desktops, did not prepare educators for the arrival and popularity of tablets, smart-phones, and social media applications. This literature review explores six different articles on this subject addressing a range of perspectives in this area. They were found searching academic databases with the terms 'e-learning', 'pedagogy' and 'technology'. To keep the articles relatively current- to reflect the development of web 2.0 and 3.0 and other recent trends- the search parameters were restricted to 2011 onwards. The overwhelming position in the literature is that pedagogy must guide our e-learning. While some articles focussed on applying this in a classroom, others preferred to construct a framework to guide educators in their e-learning design.
