Description
Digital technologies are often presented as solutions that can simply be transported from one context to another that solve problems and enhance student outcomes. In this presentation Dr Michael Phillips will argue that such ‘silicon bullet’ models inevitably miss their target. In contrast, Michael will introduce technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) as a way of understanding the ways expert teachers use digital technologies. Furthermore, Michael will provide insights into the ways in which individual schools and teachers can enhance powerful technology practices including Augmented Reality.

About the presenter

Dr Michael Phillips is an internationally recognised researcher and author who explores the challenging problem of teachers’ powerful integration of digital technologies. In particular, Michael focuses on the ways in which expert teachers develop understandings of the most effective uses of digital technologies in particular contexts.

Additional workshop: Benefits of double degrees in the age of multidisciplinary knowledge

After the workshop, you will also have the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion with Monash University representatives from the faculties of Arts, Education, Information Technology and Science about the benefits of studying a double degree.
