Online social technologies have transformed the way that we connect and communicate. In this course, students will investigate the implications of these changes for teaching and learning, conceptualize their understanding of professional and personal learning in a connected world, and explore potential pedagogical impacts for the classroom. This course also provides students with a grounding in “Web 2.0” tools which will support teaching and learning in the classroom.
The course is delivered fully online and will use multiple delivery platforms. The online nature of this course provides flexibility during a busy summer. Course content is divided into three themes: (1) Open exploration of web tools and classroom applications; (2) Development of an online professional learning network; and (3) Discussion of how web-based social interactions are changing the world of learning.
