Digital Media Pedagogy

Brian Goldfarb

Digital Media Pedagogy

Participants will consider the challenges, benefits, and pitfalls of educational application of communication technology through discussion of experiences working with students in public school classrooms, as well as media-based texts (podcasts, videos, etc.) on contemporary themes and debates related to education. Questions addressed include: How do media forms shift the relationships between various sites of learning including the school, the home and the workplace? What are the challenges digital media present to teachers, students, and schools? How do educational uses of digital media compare to older technologies such as pen and paper, textbooks, typewriters, film cameras, and analog video? Are computers improving school-based education? A central focus of the course will be the consideration of diversity (gender, ethnicity, class, age, differences in ability) in relation to evolving practices of teaching and learning
