Nicaragua Certificate

Nicaragua Cohort 2017-2018

Module Outline

This course will engage students in an arts based critical inquiry of a topic of their choice as they use technology as a resource to find, use, contextualize and evaluate information. This experiential investigation will focus on critical thinking, considering what is worth knowing, who decides, who is represented and why. Students will consider how the arts can support learning through looking, connecting, transforming and constructing knowledge. Students will use their experience through this process of investigation to develop strategies to integrate the arts and technology into their personal pedagogy and practice.

 

Throughout the course we will view and create a variety of works both individually and collaboratively as we investigate the effects and possibilities of ways in which the arts and technology can develop a sense of agency. Students will engage in reflection and dialogue in order to foster a critical approach to technology applications in the curriculum.
