This subject will consider a range of individual differences which influence student learning, methods for gathering data about learning, and ways of assisting children to improve and/or expand their learning using information technology. Students will recognise different kinds of knowledge, know the learning environments appropriate for developing different kinds of knowledge and be able to select suitable software for promoting the development of particular knowledge. Students will be aware of a variety of ways of assessing learning outcomes, be familiar with diagnostic assessment procedures, be able to assess the educational needs of individuals and groups found in normal classrooms, and be confident in selecting appropriate courseware to meet students' needs. They will also be able to effectively use a range of software in assessment, diagnosis and to support learning and know how to document the outcomes to meet the range of needs for students in normal classrooms.
