  • Overview

    This unit considers ways in which information and communication technology is changing education. It is particularly concerned with issues related to the use of technology in the classroom: how to successfully select and apply learning technologies to achieve intended learning outcomes; the new literacies that educational technologies create; and appropriate pedagogies for the contemporary global classroom. Practical application of these understandings is developed through a series of skills-based workshops that focus on how to effectively design learning tasks using the contemporary technological approaches being discussed.
