Digital Technologies EPR380

Introduction

This unit presents the theory, methods and practice of teaching using digital technologies. You will critically reflect on ICT-based issues in light of modern theorists' views of the transformative effect of digital technologies in education, and learn to select and evaluate computer-based learning materials, software and new technologies for educational purposes. 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. Your study progress is monitored by weekly hurdle tests.
