Learning Outcomes
Pleasedescribethelearningoutcomesofthecourse: Knowledge, skills and abilitiesacquiredafterthesuccessfulcompletionofthecourse.
The aim of the course is:

• to introduce students to new learning environments with the use of new technologies and their applications in the teaching of social science courses

Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to:

• recognize and describe modern applications of new technologies in learning and communication, for social science courses in the classroom environment but also in various alternative learning environments ( from ‘ distance education, virtual environments etc)• distinguish the possibilities / advantages of ICT applications in teaching and learning • explain the basic concepts of new learning and communication technologies and their connection with modern developments as well as the historical development of technology in the educational context • recognize the new role and the prospects of the teacher in the age of information society• use new technologies – ICT in the classroom in relation to different learning theories and design a learning process by integrating new learning and communication technologies into Social Science courses • integrate applications of new technologies into a learning environment inside and outside the real • develop best practices for the use of New Learning and Communication Technologies with Social Issues • create instructional scenarios for specific Social Science courses and learning series using ICT that promote learning and interaction in the wider learning environment •
