7134EDN Making Sense of Learning and New Technologies is a course of study at Griffith University for postgraduate students undertaking a Masters of Education as an elective or undertaking a Youth, Digital Culture and New Learning pathway. The course explores emerging educational trends, technologies, and challenges, through their potential to transform learning and teaching in organisations. Students will examine these challenges from three perspectives: the evolving learning environment; the technologies themselves; and the processes that can influence change to learning environments. Students explore a range of case studies, models and policies in developing a broad understanding of the role of digital technologies in contemporary learning, conduct a futures research study on the technologies most likely to impact education, and develop an organisational implementation plan to transform a learning environment.
Each week students will attend a two hour online video conference and complete approximately two hours of online practical activities. On campus learning is not supported and students will need to be able to video conference online to gain full benefit from the course.
