The pathway has been designed to meet the demand of those wishing to use / deploy / design technology and software for use in educational settings. It builds on the research interests of a number of staff within the School.

This pathway aims to support students in gaining a critical understanding of:

  • New educational advances in terms of technological and software based solutions and their impact on learning.
  • Elements of the ACM K-12 Computing curricular and how this can improve the robustness of ICT education
  • Ways in which such software is designed and built thereby providing a robust grounding on how such systems can be evaluated
  • Knowledge of the impact existing technologies are having in formal and informal educational setting and the research approaches used to collect such evidence

Course structure

The course has four taught modules (each of 30 credits): two core modules in Technology Enhanced Learning, a research method module, and an optional module. In addition there is a supervised dissertation (60 credits). It is possible to do the course part-time over three years or full-time over one year.


  • Improving Computer Education
  • 21st Century Technology.
