2010 (English)In: Interprofessional E-Learning and Collaborative Work: practices and technologies / [ed] Adrian Bromage, Lynn Clouder, Jill Thistlethwaite and Frances Gordon, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2010, 23-33 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
In recent years computer technology has developed quickly as have cultural practices in society. However, educational practices with technology have not yet reached the point where educators and learners benefit optimally from innovative technology. In interprofessional education (IPE) there are examples of technology use that forms an integral part of education. To improve IPE there is a need for reflection on how today and tomorrow’s technology can contribute. As technology and its practices melt together this reflection is however, not easily done. A framework intended as a starting point for such reflection is presented in the following chapter which involves learning from, with and about technology. To assess the benefit of technology for learning we need research on technology integration, on outcomes from learning with technology as well as processes of learning in conjunction with technology. This research has to use different perspectives involving various scientific traditions.
