This is a course designed to bring together understandings of current trends and research around digital technologies and how these studies can be put into practical use for learning across the secondary academic subjects: mathematics, science, language arts, English language arts, world languages and social studies. We will examine the complexities between technology, teaching and learning. We will look at technology from multiple perspectives to assess its potential benefits and challenges to different audiences.
