Personalised Learning and Assessment in Remote Education: A Guide for Educators and Learners

Series:

Kieran McCartney

Now that remote education has become mainstream, how can we best use mobile technology to promote  learning? How can we personalize our assessment of learning remotely?

This book explores these questions and more, considering strategies for using mobile devices for more personalised teaching. The proliferation of mobile technology provides a unique opportunity to enable a wider variety of learning and assessment opportunities for students to help them achieve learning outcomes. The research in this book indicates that students’ proficiency with and awareness of the affordances presented by mobile  technology for both learning and assessment outweigh that of educators, and this book seeks to redress this balance.

Originally focused on two further and higher education colleges in Northern Ireland, the strategies for teaching and assessment presented here have wider generalisability for educators in any sector, whether that be in education or specialist training.

The global COVID-19 lockdown has led to a complete transformation of education. Never again could pedagogy be separated from its digital dimension. Traditional learning practices were replaced overnight by digital practices, frequently untested. Many educational settings were forced to address the fragmented national and regulatory frameworks that direct teaching and learning practice as well as testing. The Digital Learning and the Future book series was born of the pandemic, offering an outlet for teachers and scholars to share their research and practices in this new reality.

This interdisciplinary book series examines the use of digital technology in education. It is part of an unfolding educational agenda around technology-enhanced learning, where technology is both blended as a tool within existing pedagogies and drives new pedagogies. The series looks to the future, to emerging technologies and methodologies. Areas of interest include educational futures and future pedagogies, pedagogy and globalization (including MOOC), mobile learning, edtech, technology in assessment, and technology and face-to-face blended learning.

The series encourages proposals for short-format books (between 25,000 and 50,000 words) with the aim of responding quickly to this rapidly changing field. Short monographs, co-authored or edited collections, case studies, practical guides and more are all welcome.
