5. Examples of Practice

5. Examples of PracticeThis chapter presents thirteen case studies that represents the work of participants in the DeFT Project. These cases mirror the diverse range of pedagogical approaches and digital applications that are increasingly prevalent in educational settings. The practice that is represented in these studies is offered as indicative of the means by which authentic learning and teaching activity in real contexts takes place. The intention is to provide the basis for reflection on the part of the reader and embedded in the cases are the reflections and emerging understandings of the teachers and learners themselves. This reflexive potential is central to the methodology of this project.

You are invited to explore these stories and to annotate them with your own understandings and reflections using Thinking Space.
