Introduction

This unit presents the theory, methods and practice of teaching using digital technologies.

The unit ensures that you are familiar with a wide range of computer applications and digital technologies and their use in educational settings. Assessment will focus on your personal capacity with ICT, your capability to integrate digital technologies into teaching practice and your readiness to transform curriculum content and pedagogy with digital technologies.
