Short description of the module

The aim of the module is to develop the teacher students’ abilities to critically understand, estimate, analyze and develop designs for learning, pupils’ roles and learning opportunities supported by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and digital media. The module furthermore aims to support the teacher students’ reflections on and awareness of the ongoing medialization and digitalization in society. ICT and digital media influence both learning objectives and the ways of learning and teaching, i.e. the bildung of both teachers and pupils.

The module will focus on five themes:

  • Children/young people’s digital media and learning cultures
  • Participatory cultures, creative learning and digital citizenship
  • New roles of teachers and pupils in school
  • Designing for new forms of learning and assessment
  • Assessment of digital learning resources and ICT-supported designs for learning

How is the module related to practice

The module utilizes a practice and experience-based approach to developing students’ teacher professional understanding of technology as an ubiquitous aspect of their professional identity. Technological understanding relates to the strategies and concepts used by teachers to pedagogically engage ICT and digital media in designing and conducting lessons. The module offers the teacher students practical working experiences with planning, designing, conducting and assessing ICT-pedagogical teaching activities.

 

Participation requirements

Participatory requirement 1:

  • Students are expected to participate actively in the lessons and other activities related to the module. On the basis of the students’ active participation, the module teachers should be able to assess the learning outcomes of the students as equal to at least “passed” on the Danish 7-point grading scale. Students will be informed if the module teachers find indications of students not being able to meet the participation requirements.

 

Participatory requirement 2:

  • Students hand in required study products and engage in the required activities involving design of ICT-supported teaching activities with a focus on new forms of learning and assessment. Students explore, examine, assess and present technological and digital learning resources.

 

Participatory requirement 3:

  • Students engage actively in oral and written reflections on the teachers’ professional understanding of technology and the need for developing 21th century learning environments in schools.

 

Requirements for passing the module

All of the above participation requirements must be approved. Approval of the participation requirements are based on the overall assessment of the students having fulfilled the objective requirements of the module, e.g. meeting deadlines for handing in studyproducts and other assignments, living up to the academic level and form as well as relating to module objectives.

Fulfillment of each individual participation requirement is based on the assessment by the instructor of the above listed requirements as well as the skills and knowledge requirements of the module. The result of the assessment will be communicated to the student as passed/not passed. In the case of a student not passing the module, please refer to part 1, paragraph 5.2.3 of the curriculum.
