Ubiquitous Learning and Instructional Technologies

Learning Module

Abstract

With presentations by leading researchers into technology innovation at the University of Illinois, this learning module explores the future of learning in an environment of ubiquitous technology-mediated communication. Bill Cope pushes the boundaries of possibility with his five propositions about the future of learning. Cris Mayo explores the gendered aspects of technology and ways in which we can critically engage with technologies in education. Chad Lane explores the dynamics of technology-mediated learning in games and museums. Maya Israel introduces the challenges and opportunities of teaching computer science.
