Tech Trumps

Digital technologies can be a powerful way of supporting students, by extending and augmenting their existing knowledge, skills and competencies. The ‘Tech Trumps” – digital playing cards in the top trump style – are a way for students and academics to find technologies which would be most appropriate to support them according to a specific assessment design. They summarise the strengths of everyday technologies – their affordances if you will – in relation to a specific learning context.

Together with the Dimensions of Work-Integrated Assessment model, a design tool to help academics develop assessments, the tech trumps can be used to align a specific learning scenario with technologies which should be effective in supporting that scenario.
