Technologies for Creative Learning: Course Description

Individuals each have their own way of learning. For instance, some learn through listening, others need visual representations, and some require tactile experience. Furthermore, most people benefit by accessing information through multiple avenues. Taught by Professor Mitchel Resnick, 'Technologies for Creative Learning' from the MIT Media Arts and Sciences program explores how new technologies provide new avenues of learning and how to incorporate these into various fields. The lecture-based course looks at the different learning styles, how toys shaped the learning process, the importance of technological fluency and how to utilize all these aspects to encourage new ways of thinking and learning. Projects invite students to research existing ways of teaching a skill or activity, identify the failures of these methods, come up with new designs and evaluate their effectiveness.

In this OpenCourseWare, you'll find students' lecture notes, a full reading list, web links to available readings, finished student projects and class assignments. If you're interested in finding new ways to learn, then visit the technical designs for learning course page.
