Visual distractions from deep learning?

Second MirandaMod at the IoE, London

The theme for this event was Visual Learning. You can view some of the presentations below.

A Round Table Discussion:

Dr. John Cuthell, Christina Preston, MirandaNet , Vanessa Pittard, Becta & Rachel Jones, Steljes
Some researchers believe that visual technologies in classrooms are simply for entertainment, providing a light interlude between lessons designed to achieve deep learning, and might even distract from the serious business of schools. In contrast, some experienced practitioners believe that deep learning today cannot take place without the use of technologies to support visual learning. How best can we reconcile these two points of view?
