In this module you will explore the trajectory and possible future implications of digital technology for education. You will engage with some of the key concepts in learning and technology, such as creativity, ubiquity and digital literacies; and will use these ideas to critically consider emerging educational practice and new technologies and pedagogy. Using a variety of digital tools, face-to-face seminars and/or online activities, and drawing on a range of literature from educational technology, e-learning and psychology, you will not only develop your critical understanding of issues around technology in education, you will also discuss, debate and theorise with other students what digital futures of education may look like.
