Childhood in the Digital Age is a four week long course beginning on 8 June 2015. During the course, you’ll ask: is social media changing the way that children form relationships? How is technology changing the way that children think? And how will it shape the classroom of the future?
The course is offered by The Open University on the attractive FutureLearn platform, and is led by Dr Nathalia Gjersoe. It requires 3 hours of study time per week, a total of 12 hours overall. The course is free to study, and if required, a Certificate of Participation is available at £29. The course is intended for anyone with a general interest in childhood studies and child psychology and does not require any prior experience of studying this subject.
