EDUC 5110G - Global Perspectives in Education and Technology


This course will explore global perspectives on digital technology and innovation. Students will situate their learning within their lived cultural and professional contexts while appreciating the lens of the “other” and critically challenging previously held constructs. Influences such as identity, culture, accessibility, and the role of digital technology will be addressed. In addition, students will examine alternative world views about the role of digital technology in education and across additional academic spheres (e.g., health, economy, socio-demographics, geography). Factors such as the role of misinformation, the use of social media to shape global perspectives, and the deconstruction of traditional power structures will be analyzed with a focus on disruptive innovation and how education can help improve the human condition.
Credit hours: 3
