Learning and Teaching with Social Media

  • Course Number: EDCT-GE 2008
  • Hours: 30
  • Units: 3
  • Description: To enter the workplace as a designer of formal & informal technology-rich learning environments, students from Education, the Arts, & Industry need to become fluent with advances in social cognitive theory as well as the state-of-the-art technical affordances of social media. In this course students learn to apply a range of social media - wikis, games, digital video stories & mini-moves, social networking, & virtual worlds - as they work in teams to develop a curriculum module for both teaching & learning. Students will use the Perspectivity Framework, a framework that enables stake holders to layer diverse “points of viewing” using appropriate technologies required to investigate a complex topic.
