The tools and/or platforms that contribute to the school’s “official” digital learning environment may be different to the tools that students and teachers use outside of school. Teachers need support to integrate these tools into their teaching practices because the technology alone will not transform learning (Kemker, 2005). Professional learning delivered by the school and individuals developing their own personal learning networks (with an emphasis on lifelong learning) is necessary.
