About Education: International Perspectives (Technology in Education) at Newcastle University

The Education: International Perspectives (Technology in Education) MA allows you to study how the nature of teaching and learning is changing in a highly connected environment.

Learners are increasingly relying on each other and the Internet for their learning and metacognition resources. As an educator you need to understand your role in such an environment and how to use Information, Communication and Educational Technology effectively for achieving your objectives.

On the course you will cover:

  • self-organised learning environments
  • why pedagogy matters
  • the impact of technology on education
  • the latest innovations in educational technology

This course will be useful for educators. Through developing knowledge of this subject your teaching skills will be strengthened and employability will improve. The course will also be of interest to people with an IT background who are keen on developing or supporting technology enhanced learning. 

The course builds on a strong research base in two research centres in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences:

  • the Centre for Learning and Teaching
  • SOLE Central 

The course also draws on the expertise of a number of highly regarded academics. These include:

  • Professor David Leat

There is an extended induction programme that provides you with support for advanced study, including assignment writing and information and communications and technology (ICT) training.
