The creative spark and grind of technology in education

Jon Audain – Senior Lecturer in Primary ICT and Music | Department for Teacher Development | Faculty of Education, Health and Social Care | University of Winchester

The spark and the grind
Just look at this mess! EdTech, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Computing, Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS), Digital Literacy. It is the odd sock syndrome again, where the pairs should line up together in the drawer, but this simplicity has often been lost. Naace members will be aware of all the conflicting definitions. I have to support our university students as they try to pick their way through the minefield.
