EDUC 5109G - Emerging Trends and Issues in Learning Technologies


We live in a time of constant change, complexity and disruption that calls for educators to be aware of and critically evaluate emerging trends and issues in learning technologies. Educators need to develop robust future literacies, including radical imagination, flexibility, and relational systems thinking. This course has three primary goals: 1) critically explore the social issues inherent in using new digital learning technologies; 2) acquaint students with some of the affordances and constraints of new digital learning technologies, and 3) help students develop basic skills in designing, making, and/or evaluating educational uses of these new pedagogies and technologies. Some of the learning technologies that may be explored include augmented/virtual/mixed reality, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, the Internet of Things (smart devices), wearables, and biometrics.
Credit hours: 3
