Information Technology in Schools (EDSE4044)


The unit of study builds on student's knowledge and skills gained from their previous information and communication technologies (ICT) related units of study, and curriculum subject areas. The unit of study focuses on multimedia learning theory and learning from and with multimedia. Students will be provided with an overview of the principles of designing multimedia resources to enhance the teaching/learning process. By immersing students in the use of ICT tools as part of the assessment tasks and in-class activities, the unit of study provides students with hands-on experiences in designing, developing and producing learning resources relevant to their curriculum subjects.
