Introduction to Emerging Technologies

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that University of Manitoba is offering a Certificate in Emerging Technologies for Learning. The first course – introduction to emerging technologies – starts November 17. From the course description (.pdf): “New technologies offer new opportunities for educators to increase learner engagement and improve the overall value of the learning experience. The last five years have resulted in the introduction of numerous new tools and approaches: blogs, wikis, podcasts, social bookmarking, virtual worlds, and social networking services. This course will explore the development of different technologies and suggest their potential impact on teaching and learning. Focus will be placed on tools
that increase learner control over content, interaction, and the formation of learning networks with peers and experts outside of classrooms.”
