Making Sense of Learning and New Technologies (7134EDN)

In a rapidly changing social and technological landscape contemporary educators are required to negotiate multiple and competing positions regarding the best ways to respond to the ongoing emergence of 'new technologies' and the 'digital' learning environments associated with them. The course will examine the patterns or modes of learning that have been developed to make use of various digital technologies over time. Students will draw upon an empirical base with two components: the extant literature concerning learning and the new technologies; and a range of case studies of learning in which the role of digital technologies has been prominent. From this empirical base, students will develop robust frameworks to support their current and future professional engagement with contemporary and yet-to-be-developed digital technologies.
