About this course

The Education and Technology MA will teach students the practical and research skills to design, use and evaluate technology-enhanced learning interventions. They will learn how to embed technology within educational practice, explore key issues and debates in this field, and critically appraise educational theory.

  • This programme is run by UCL's London Knowledge Lab (LKL) where social scientists engage in research on the future of learning with digital technologies in a wide range of educational settings. Commonly the research is interdisciplinary in nature, with collaborations involving, for example, computer scientists, designers, and subject specialist educators.
  • The London Knowledge Lab conducts research that involves design, development and evaluation across a broad range of media, systems and environments, and brings together social scientists from the areas of education, sociology, culture and media, semiotics, computational intelligence, information management, personalisation, semantic web and ubiquitous technologies.
  • The MA attracts students from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities, providing scope for broad intellectual discussion and debate, and opportunities for multidisciplinary working, and global networking.
