14: Virtual Learning: InEquality in Education?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in deutscher Sprache

The working group will deal with the question of how the use of new technologies and virtual learning environments might mitigate the social, gender-specific and cognitive factors of inequality in teaching. What about the danger that the enhanced use of technologies might lead to new inequalities in teaching? Innovative forms of technology-based teaching and learning will be discussed against the background of their motivational, theoretical and practical perspectives and their implications for “InEquality”.
