2 weeks, part-time, online
With the demands of an increasingly digitised world, there is a growing awareness among educators that teaching and learning need to evolve to better prepare teachers and students for this changing world.
Through this course from The Mind Lab, you’ll learn to integrate digital technologies effectively into the curriculum to help your learners develop the skills required for the 21st century, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and the ability to collaborate.
You’ll explore, with real-world examples, how digital tools can be used in creative ways in cross-curricular contexts. You will be guided through collaborative teaching and learning, what it means for learners, tools that can support you in designing learning activities, and ways to develop your personal learning networks (PLN) in this interconnected world. On every step of the course you can meet other learners, share your ideas and join in with active discussions.
Founded in 2013, The Mind Lab designs courses to address the imbalance between what is being taught in schools and the skills the future requires. They specialise in raising the digital skills and capabilities of teachers and allowing them to integrate digital tools within their school communities.
This course is designed for educators across any setting, including teachers, librarians, museum staff, learning technologists, and higher education faculty, among others.
