Content

New technologies are widely used in schools to support and enhance teaching and learning and often form the focus of curriculum change and educational reform processes. This unit aims to assist students to enhance their professional practice by developing their understandings of issues that impact on the effective use of new technologies in education through a critical examination of the research and professional literature in this area. Topics to be addressed in this unit include an exploration of the barriers and incentives for teachers and trainers to effectively infuse the teaching and learning experience with new technologies and identification of the theoretical, educational, and professional issues that underpin the effective use of new technologies in education and training. In this unit students are immersed in a fully online learning environment which is used to create a personal experience of many of the issues addressed in the unit. All students are required to participate in online discussions.
