The University of Hull is a public university, founded in 1927, located in Kingston upon Hull, a city in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The School of Education resides within the Faculty of Arts, Cultures and Education, and plays a vibrant role in preparing and supporting teachers across the region. Digital technologies are a key focus for the school both from a research and a development point of view. Staff in the school have led a number of national and international research and development projects focused on the impact of digital technologies for learning.
Professor Kevin Burden leads the group and also coordinates the Digital Education Research network which is a cross faculty, interdisciplinary research and scholarship group focused on the pedagogical impact of digital technologies. In 2014 Professor Burden was awarded EU funding to investigate and develop the use of mobile technologies in teacher education. The Mobilising and Transforming Teacher Educators’ pedagogies project (www.mttep.eu) has made a major impact on pre-service teachers, teachers and teacher educators across Europe and has resulted in the production of a mobile learning toolkit to support and enhance their practices. The DEIMP project continues the theme of MTTEP but this time with an even greater focus on what is really innovative and transformational about the use of mobile technologies in teacher education.
