Digitalization and Implementation Processes in School I (DIP I) 7,5 Credits

This course prepares educational leaders, teachers, and researchers to make informed decisions and take well-balanced actions regarding the digitalization of education. Digitalization of educational settings is a burning question worldwide. Despite global divides, schools in many countries have a relatively long history of using digital devices. The course will explore the role and functions of digital tools, and how these are implemented in every day teaching and learning.
