The Digital Learning Switchover Infographic explores the differences between an 'analogue' style lesson and the new 'digital' learning.
According to the infographic, analogue lessons are about teacher-led input, which then means checking understanding through receptive practice, eventually leading to revision and assessment. Bringing mobile devices into the classroom opens up this straightforward system into one with more dynamic verbs like "publish", "contextualise", "share" and "extend", allowing students to research and create things for themselves. Teachers take on more of a supporting role, and engagement, enjoyment and motivation increase because students are able to be more innovative. A flipped classroom also supports this. The keywords here are "independence", "differentiation", "personalisation" and "challenge" because with digital devices students are increasingly able to direct their learning - and teachers are increasingly able to personalise classes.
