What does the future of education look like? Are educators going to be replaced by robots? Is STEM going to take over? This subject critically evaluates current and emerging trends within e- Learning and educational technology more broadly. Students engage, in a practical way, with some of the current developments in learning, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, gamification, robotics, STEM education and much more. As part of this, students both examine previous trends in education and consider their success or failure, as well as applying their understanding of different learning and instructional theories to determine the educative potential of current and emerging trends. They also design and develop prototype learning objects using emerging technologies.
