Slide 47

Why is this important? Because technology is not just a tool It gives us the capacity to do new things (the ‘affordances argument’) It represents an extension of our perceptions (the McLuhan argument) “We shape technology, and then technology shapes us”

Slide 48

What kind of learner we become depends on what kind of learning technology we choose
