The DiAL-e Framework: Digital Artefacts for Learning Engagement

Dedicated webpages (wordpress site) at: www.dial-e.net

Since 2006 Kevin Burden and Simon Atkinson have been developing a new framework to support educators use digital resources (artefacts). The framework was inspired by a JISC project to support the take-up of digitised artefacts from the NewsFilm Online project.

The framework is a matrix consisting of 2 axis.

The first axis contains 10 learning designs and the second axis a series of spaces in which learning takes place.

We have defined the learning designs in terms of what the learner does, actively, cognitively, with a digital artefact. We have provided elaborations of the learning designs themselves and are suggesting ways in which space might change the articulation of that design.

Our work to date is focused on, though not exclusively, tertiary education practice.

Further project details are available at http://www.dial-e.net where a 15 minute Adobe Presenter presentation outlines the DiAL-e framework
