C I 2300 - Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age (2)

When Offered: Fall; Spring; Summer Session
This course will examine how emerging technologies are transforming our society and schools, as well as the implications these changes have for teaching and learning. Strategies for building teacher education candidates’ critical habits of mind with respect to new technologies and media will be developed in the context of a broad definition of literacy that includes traditional and emerging literacies. As teacher education candidates learn to integrate technology into their teaching and to produce media themselves, the ethical, legal, and pedagogical issues related to technology creation and use will be emphasized. Throughout the course, teacher education candidates will explore the institutional context for the use of technology in schools and will develop skills at identifying and addressing the constraints and contradictions implicit in using technology creatively in public school classrooms. A grade of “C” (2.0) or higher must be earned. Must be taken prior to admission to teacher education. FDN 2400  and/or PSY 3010  may be taken concurrently with this course.
Prerequisite: sophomore status with identified intended or declared major in teacher education.
