LDT 100 World Technologies and Learning (3)
LDT 100 examines the sociocultural impacts of learning technologies of various sorts on world cultures. The course will examine several international cases of learning technologies, such as email, online learning, telecommunications, and wireless computing, as they are used for education and learning and implemented in several world cultures such as the US, UK, India, China, Africa, Europe, and Oceania. The primary objective of the course is to help students understand how learning technologies impact other cultures, and their own; how learning technologies bring dramatic change; and how these changes can be predicted, understood, and planned for.
The course may offer an important introduction to the area of Learning, Design, and Technology, but it is otherwise not related to specific programs of study. It contributes to the General Education requirements for undergraduates.
