Educ Technology in a Global Context

Educational technologies have become essential for international exchange as a 'Sleapfrog' technology for development, as a way of bridgingdistance in education, and as an important means for the preservation and dissemination of local cultures and contexts. Educational technology is a significant and growing force worldwide, and not only in industrialized nations. E-learning, open educational resources, m-learning, and educational media are transforming not only formal primary, secondary, and postsecondary education, but also rural economic development, agriculture, and women's empowerment. In this course, we look at how educational communications and technology shape, and are shaped by, their context internationally.
