The aim of this unit is to support development of critical thinking about curriculum and assessment of digital technologies in social and cultural contexts by investigating perceptions of digital technology in relation to sciences, social sciences and the humanities from global and local perspectives. 21st Century digital education theories will be explored, particularly in relation to the application of Big Data, Data Mining and Learning Analytics in the educational environment. Drawing on theorists such as Bruno Latour and Donna Haraway, students will critically examine the way in which digital technology influences society and conversely how society influences digital technology through curriculum and assessment. Through this unit, students develop critical awareness of the impact of technology on social change, the perpetuation of digital environments that replicate certain societies and cultures in various contexts, and the role of curricula and assessment in developing digital learning futures into the 21st Century.
