Socio-technical changes create a wide range of challenges and opportunities for educators and those who support learning around the world. New digital technologies (such as credit-card sized computers, digital games, mobile devices, robots, social media, tangible technologies) are becoming embedded in our societies and being used for a wide range of purposes in educational settings.
The pathway is designed for those who wish to take a critical perspective on the use of technology to support teaching and learning. It is suitable for people with a variety of educational backgrounds and experiences, including teachers and lecturers, creative technologists, and those who support informal learning settings such as museums and public spaces.
As you look to develop your career as a leader of learning, this MSc will provide you with an in-depth understanding of socio-technical change and the uses of digital technologies to support educational initiatives in diverse contexts and settings. It will also prepare you for further research in this rapidly developing field.
