Educational Technology Framework – (Gilfus Model)

April 23rd, 2004 The Gilfus model, based on Blackboard adoption in over 2000 institutions, is interesting as it attempts to define the emergence of a new curriculum paradigm. Teachers can be switched on to using ICT for a number of reasons but let’s not forget that a key catalyst to eLearning will be students themselves and their expectations that the technologies they take for granted in their everyday lives (instant messaging, mobile devices etc) should be available for them as learners.
