Digitally Mediated Learning and Pre-Service Teachers in Less Resourced Regions

Samuel Adu Gyamfi, Kwame Ansong-Gyimah

Digital technologies of today have challenged the traditional systems of education and have created potential new ways of delivery of knowledge and skills that require a critical look at learning and how it might be delivered. This study seeks to identify and describe the types of digitally mediated learning (DML) practices present at the training of teachers in less resourced regions. A qualitative analysis of pre-service teachers online posts on a selected social media will be analysed to identify Hanging Out, Messing Around and Geeking Out - HOMAGO (Ito, et al., 2010) practices and to ascertain if any interest-driven learning occurs in this environment. Results from this study will add to existing knowledgebase of DML practices especially in teacher education.

Keywords: digitally mediated learning, HOMAGO, social media, higher education, teacher education
