It is expected that the students will be able to access the online learning modules, be able to work independently and contribute to group (online) learning contexts.They will also need to be able to implement their learning module with children either in home or school/ centre contexts.
What is different about learning in the 21st century is that it is multimodal. That is, children have experiences and make meaning using languages, images, in different places and spaces, with new technologies, their bodies, by listening and explaining (linguistic) and they share and explain these experiences in multiple formats in multimodal texts. In this topic we explore ‘new learning’ (Kalantzis & Cope, 2012) and examine the ways in which we can create contexts for becoming multiliterate in contemporary society.
This topic aims to:
Explore the dominant theories of learning that are prevalent in educational discourses
Investigate the notion of ‘new learning’ by considering what makes learning different in the 21st century
Consider how we can create learning contexts for multimodal learning in contemporary times.
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic, students will be expected to be able to:
Gain a knowledge base about how children learn in contemporary times
Develop new understandings about what ‘new learning’ might look like in 21st century education
Design new learning contexts that promote deep learning and capable students who are engaged with knowledge production in the 21st century.
