New Tools for Learning

Title New Tools for Learning
Description  New Tools for Learning encourages learners take responsibility for the processes and artifacts of their learning. It begins by guiding the learner through a series of considerations when selecting and evaluating a learning tool. The module then introduces two strategies to manage the abundance of information available in the digital age: curating, as a means of organizing and making sense of a collection of resources, and archiving, as a means of preserving the artifacts of learning for later retrieval. This module will also invite learners to consider new tools and technologies for learning, as well as what factors to look for when selecting learning tools.
