Specialization in Digital Technology in the Classroom


Digital Technology in the Classroom


Designer and Instructor: Saskia Stille and Maryam Wagner

New methods of engaging in technology change the way students learn and function in the classroom. As technology becomes more ingrained in daily life, many school boards are incorporating a wide variety of digital technologies into the curriculum.

Students are now digital natives and expect a certain amount of learning to be facilitated and taught through digital technology. Teachers must be trained to utilize and implement technology in the classroom. In this unit, teachers will explore the use of new technologies and the meaningful ways in which they can improve students’ learning practices.
