The mission of the Digital Media, New Literacies and Learning program is to make education more powerful for all students by creating opportunities to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community. Participants in this program develop the skills, knowledge and dispositions needed to design technology-based media rich learning environments and become instructional leaders and agents of change in formal and Informal educational settings.
Learn to create and implement effective technology and media rich learning experiences through an understanding of learning theory, instructional design principles, technology, and application. Explore and create a range of digital media (educational software, curriculum materials, gaming, mobile computing, social networks, digital stories) and reflect on your applications to educational issues in different disciplines and core content areas. Gain the skills you need to teach the 21st Century literacies and skills to succeed in the digital age. Become a leader and mentor in the use of digital media and technology to promote 21st Century literacies and skills.
