New digital technologies are transforming learning across the lifespan–from reading apps for toddlers, intelligent tutors for school children, blended learning for college students, MOOCs for adults, and interest-based learning communities for hobbyists. In this course, we explore these technologies and how they shape people’s lives and learning. Coursework will help students explore learning, media and technology through multiple lenses– history, policy, social theory, design, and evaluation. Students will refine their thinking about the opportunities, limits, and tradeoffs of educational technology. Graduate students will complete additional assignments.
