Developments in technology and instructional design are now a constant for today’s teachers and learners, and we all need help separating the wheat from the chaff. Should I adopt this new pedagogical tool? And, how? Can I take ‘non-educational’ tech and adapt it for high-impact learning? Can we successfully integrate tech in learning contexts with tech ‘outside the classroom’? Can we leverage changes in modern life to support deeper learning? How do new developments in design and technology immerse students in learning, to promote enduring and continued growth after they leave the classroom? ELD16 is the venue to muse on these questions and present your answers to a community of fellow instructors and researchers who are looking for ways to engage with the process and improve their own practice.
