Course content

This MA programme provides an opportunity for practitioners and education professionals to undertake higher level studies of ICT in education. The course is grounded in a broadly based critical theory approach that aims to think beyond the norms of current educational practice.

ICT is a rapidly changing field and is not confined to simple awareness of hardware, software and network infrastructures. ICT has strong social, cultural and political dimensions and many new forms of educational practice cannot be understood, nor their potential realised, without understanding these deeper implications of technology in education.

You'll have the opportunity to undertake a literature and review based assignment, covering a negotiated topic from a set of issues such as the affect of computing on educational outcomes, the nature of digital citizenship, the character of digital literacy or the changing organisational designs for education.
