M.Ed. in Media and Technology Studies Education

DLC4 Cohort | Vancouver Area Program | Begins September 2017
This unique master¹s program directly addresses the new Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (ADST) requirements for BC¹s K-7 curriculum, and is a ³learning to code² and ³coding to learn² initiative
 
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
30 credits, part-time | Blended: Face-to-Face & Online
 
In BC, media and technology are core to ³personalized learning² and 21st century learning (21C). The Ministry of Education significantly revised the cluster of disciplines in Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (ADST). ADST is now a requirement within the K-7 educational program.
 
What are some ³big ideas² of ADST? Responding to the pervasive use of social media and technologies and maker culture outside the schools, Prime Minister Trudeau and BC Premiere Clark announced that coding will be required within the BC curriculum. This is a ³learning to code² and ³coding to learn² initiative.
 
The DLC4 cohort is designed to directly address ADST and coding initiatives and curriculum changes through creative and critical inquiry, advanced intellectual engagement, and new, big ideas in learning and teaching. UBC¹s Digital Learning and Curriculum cohort is home to movers and shakers or early adopters of media and technology as well as those interested in critical, contemplative approaches.
