IMPACT | S2 | Ep 2 | Taking classroom tech beyond the ‘wow‘ factor

November 8, 2021

Humanity has never been more immersed in technology.

But as its influence grows in every aspect of our lives, CQUniversity Associate Professor of Information and Communication Technology Michael Cowling says debate continues to rage about technology’s role in the classroom.

The academic and tech enthusiast is a National Teaching Fellow advocating for pedagogy before technology, and he shares his research-informed approach on this second episode of IMPACT research podcast series two.  

While A/Prof Cowling has experienced the transformative power of putting students in Extended Reality, he also warns that we shouldn't assume young people will automatically "get" technology - but they will need to for navigating our digital future.
