“New technology is common, new thinking is rare.”
– Sir Peter Blake
The role of the Educational Technologist goes beyond knowing pedagogical approaches to using technology to enhance the learning process. The ubiquitous nature of the internet in our social and cultural fabric now demands that a new level of digital literacy and citizenship be practiced by all online users. This literacy is understood through the reclamation of data control, active participation in and contributions to online networks. It is with this literacy that tools provide innovative solutions. It is with it’s individual citizens that the approaches and pedagogies are employed.
