EDUC 7105 - Learning Theory and Educational Technology


(4 cr.) In this course, education professionals extend their knowledge of learning theory, including behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism, to the application of educational technology as they explore ways to translate theory to practice. Education professionals explore instructional interventions and their potential improvement through the application of technology. They also use a variety of theories, such as multiple intelligences, constructivism, computers as mind tools, brain-based learning, and connectivism to learn how technology facilitates learning. Through a collaborative constructivist activity, education professionals critically analyze constructivist learning theorists to determine how their principles apply to educational technology. Using knowledge gained from these analyses, education professionals identify and explain related challenges regarding the use of constructivist and collaborative activities for learning as well as solutions for overcoming these barriers.
