Overview

Course Title

Philosophies of Teaching and Learning and Digital Pedagogy

Description

This course is aligned with NYC and NYS learning outcomes for digital citizenship as well as recommendations of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). The course develops foundational knowledge of the history, purposes of and current state of digital citizenship education in K-12 settings. In this course, learners will be asked to analyze what it means to be a citizen of digital spaces and to consider the implications of educational technology for K12 teaching and learning as well as broader societal implications of technology use. This course aims to equip educators with knowledge, skills, and dispositions to bring digital citizenship into their classrooms in equitable, ethical, and meaningful ways. Learners will understand the historical context and present state of educational technologies through the lens of digital citizenship: legal obligation, various sets of learning standards, traditional frameworks of citizenship education, and research on youth and technology. Participants will learn how to integrate these topics into various content areas and to make informed decisions regarding teaching and learning with technologies. Throughout this course, learners will engage in discussions and assignments that encourage thinking critically about how to use online technologies in safe, ethical, equitable, and effective ways.
