Issues in Learning with ICT is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with the University of New England. The unit’s key aim is to examine and evaluate the effectiveness of IT as a learning tool within a professional field of your choosing. As well as the extent to which new technology can enhance learning, you will also consider the legal, ethical, and practical questions raised by ICT teaching solutions.
To begin with, this unit will focus on teaching you how to analyse context in relation to an ICT learning project. The implications are radically different depending on the demographic studied, so understanding context is essential. Following this, you will explore pedagogical issues arising from ICT, to gauge the effectiveness of computer-led solutions in your chosen professional environment.
Ultimately, this unit will teach you how technological advances can empower learning, though you will also critique its associated negative impacts. Through evaluating the efficacy of ICT learning programs in a professional field of your choice, this unit allows you to understand when and where ICT-led training methods are appropriate for business.
