“This course is designed to introduce undergraduate students to the appropriate and innovative use of technology in PK-12 learning environments. Students will learn to use new and emerging technology tools, explore and critique emerging forms of media, and engage in innovative pedagogies appropriate for learning in the digital age. Social learning, especially that which is mediated through technology, is a course focus. Through the use of distributed connections between peers and other trusted educators, students will come to better understand the power of networks for problem-solving, resource-sharing, critical thinking, and personal learning. The skills and connections gained from this course will allow students to better understand technology integration in education, and become better equipped to critically interpret contemporary issues in schools that are in part a result of emerging technologies and societal trends” (ECMP 355 Syllabus Course Description, Katia Hildebrandt, 2016).
