ePosts is envisaged as a ‘sister-resource’ to Signposts and Goalposts, ie a booklet style of 10 one-page ‘primers’ written in simple, accessible language, demystifying concepts, terminology and principles.
The goal is to produce, and pilot, an entry-level handbook for new tertiary teachers, and teachers new to eLearning, so they can introduce effective, proven strategies into their own learning environments.
Six New Zealand tertiary institutions are engaged in a collaborative network of practice around learners and mobile devices, examining the ways in mobility, social media and new approaches to learning and teaching are changing the landscape of education. The project will generate a range of practical strategies for students, teachers and leaders to utilise the affordances of mobile devices for pedagogical transformation and empowering learners.
