Educational Applications of Information Technology

This subject will consider a range of individual differences which influence student learning, methods for gathering data about learning, and ways of assisting children to improve and expand their learning using information technology.

Students will be aware of a variety of ways of assessing learning outcomes, be familiar with diagnostic assessment procedures, be able to assess the educational needs of individuals and groups found in normal classrooms, and be confident in selecting appropriate courseware to meet students’ needs.
