Abstract

The Evaluation of Learning Technologies project is a BP-funded initiative with two main research interests: developing an evaluation toolkit for practitioners, and the derivation of pedagogically-underpinned tools and methods for integrating learning technologies into the curriculum.

The first strand of work has produced a framework for evaluation, which is used to select appropriate methodologies for users' needs. This is currently being trialled in a series of case studies, which will be used to refine the framework and inform the development of the toolkit.

The second strand also contains practical elements of evaluation. The methodology being developed begins by reviewing ways of using learning technologies in terms of the educational interactions they support (in terms of Laurillard's conversational framework), simple measures of cost-effectiveness, and the flexibility with which they support learning.

The presentation will concentrate on research involving the framework for evaluation, but will describe the integrative methodology and describe how they will be combined in a later phase of the project.
