EDE913 Digital Technologies and Effective Pedagogy

In this unit, the focus is on critical literacy with regard to the integration of digital technologies in teaching and learning. Increasingly, this is being described as ‘digital literacy.’ Being a digitally literate teacher does not mean transforming oneself into a technological guru. Rather, it is about creativity, problem-solving, and sound evaluation of each form of technology and its potential (or lack of potential) to enhance teaching and learning. It is about constantly questioning and making sound judgments about a technology’s power to amplify the learning possibilities for students. The unit will provide a broad overview of ICT in education and allow you to reflect on your use of ICT for your own learning, for teaching, and administration.
