Abstract

“Skills and competencies suited for the success of people in knowledge economies are either supported or enhanced by ICT, and for many young people schools are the only places where such competencies and skills can be learned” (Fadel, 2008). With the preponderance of emergent technologies, educational institutions will need to equip faculty, students, and practitioners with the skills, dispositions, and technology-based experiences requisite to achieve in a digital world. This study seeks to further this agenda by promoting guided participatory action research as a means of engaging stakeholders in a community of practice for exploring the potential impact of a recent generation of mobile devices – the media tablet – on learning and practice. This presentation shares the early stages of this investigation in the hope of engaging with colleagues pursuing similar interests or projects.
