Reflective learning, future thinking: Report from the A.L.T. 2005 Research Seminar

Learning technology is being driven rapidly onward by many forces: pedagogic, financial, political, technical, and cultural. This paper explores three themes representing key directions for learning technology development:

  • digital repositories, or large-scale institutional content management systems, learning object content management systems, repositories of research outputs, and similar
  • e-portfolios, which might be seen as personal learning object management systems, or personal repositories of e-portfolio items, and the individual representations or presentations made from e-portfolio items
  • ubiquitous computing, from simple ready access to personal Internet connectivity ranging through adaptive, personalised, location-aware smart environments, virtual presence and ambient computing.
