Course aims
The course gives overview of the connection points of Educational Technology and Learning Sciences based on scientific research in the domain:
- how has educational technology been used to extend our understanding of what learning is, how it happens, and what is the result of learning;
- how were different learning theories used for advancing or developing learning environments, -methods and –resources to solve the challenges of education;
- how to evaluate educational applications from the learning theories’ aspect.
Brief description of the course
The course gives overview to extend understanding, what is technology advanced learning from the perspective of different learning theories; how to apply different learning theories in technology enhanced design of educational environments, tools and resources to solve the challenges of learning; and how to evaluate those from the perspective of different learning theories. At the course the students have to individually analyze several learning environments, -scenarios and digital resources from the point of view of different learning theories, the peer-learning is organised to discover unclear understandings about the connections of learning theories and their interrelations with educational technology.
Learning outcomes in the course
Upon completing the course the student:
- associates the different learning theory principles with the design elements of the digital learning environments and –resources.
