Conceptualizing dimensions and a model for digital pedagogy

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateScientificpeer-review


The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused a rising interest in the use of digital pedagogies and the need to teach remotely. This article aims to conceptualize the dimensions described below and offer a model for digital pedagogy to provide tools for using digital technologies in teaching. The model for digital pedagogy is discussed in terms of three dimensions: 1) pedagogical orientation; 2) pedagogical practices; and 3) the digital pedagogical competencies it provides for the teacher. This study examines how the dimensions of digital pedagogy are presented in the current research literature. The research is conducted through a systematic literature review surveying articles published in the years 2014 to 2019; a total of 12 articles are included in the review. The findings suggest that, first, in many cases, pedagogical orientation is labeled as socio-constructivist and student-centered. Second, pedagogical practices are the methods used to promote students’ learning; they involve, for example, collaboration and social knowledge construction. Finally, in addition to technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge, teachers’ success in blending digital technologies into their teaching is improved by high self-efficacy and strong peer-collaboration skills.
