Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the ‘fit’ between educational technologies and teacher views and pedagogies in light of two recently completed research projects. These studies focused on observed pedagogies associated with the classroom-based use of two learning technologies: (student-generated) digital video, and interactive whiteboards (IWBs). The paper considers the use of these two learning technologies from a socio-cultural perspective that recognizes that the nature of tools and the nature of societal use of these tools are mutually dependent. We raise questions of how the inherent nature of different technologies might shape different learning experiences and outcomes, and whether certain technologies ‘fit’ better with some pedagogical approaches than others.
