The main purpose of this course is to explore digital technologies in 21st century learning contexts. In Summer 2015 we will focus on iPads, interactive lessons, and social media in education. Our focus will be on: 1) using iPads and interactivity to build knowledge about teaching; and 2) using iPads and other digital technologies to encourage active learning. An underlying theme in this course is to build understanding and experiences of the formation of participatory learning cultures in the 21st century learning classroom. This course complements EDCP 470 and focuses on methods and practices while EDCP 508 focuses on methods and theory.
