Thursday, June 26 4:30 PM-5:00 PM
This paper describes three general groupings for professional education staff that use technology for educational purposes. The three groupings can be identified based on personal interaction styles with their use of Educational Media technologies. These groups are significant as they have an impact on student engagement, achievement and enjoyment. The three groups also impact on how effectively educational media are used in professional learning communities. The paper also suggests how we might develop sustainable and effective use of technology in professional learning communities. Moreover, the paper asks whether we as educators are making effective use of the educational multi-media that we already have.
