This course sets out to provide an understanding of theories of learning and development and how these theories relate to educational technology. It has two components. The first is theoretical, in which we attempt to develop an overall frame of reference, locating approaches to the psychology of learning in terms of large paradigm shifts, from ‘behaviorism’ to ‘brain developmentalism’ to ‘social cognitivism’. The second component is practical, in which we will use these theoretical concepts to ‘parse’ a technology-mediated learning environment for its underlying presuppositions.

I think it's a great course for people who are interested in Educational Psychology. I recommend it for those who are "beginners" or in other words, who haven't quite studied psychology yet.
It was an amazing experience and this course has highlighted many points where you can improve the quality of teaching and learning process for the development of the children.
