Any contemporary look at e-learning must consider those applications that have the potential to transform teaching and learning beyond the class-centric confines of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This e-primer contextualises e-learning tools that are not usually a part of a VLE suite, and considers their application to formal education.
This project sought to discover to what extent teachers had access to suitable authentic materials to teach the important norms of pragmatics (socio-culturally appropriate use of language) in situations relevant to the personal and academic or employment lives of their students.
The aim of this study was to generate teaching practice narratives from stage one early childhood student teachers based on their experiences in a field-based teacher education programme. This research documents the experiences of first year students. It is important to acknowledge their limited and perhaps idealized view of their experiences to date.
