Abstract

Education – that is, the development of knowledge, skills, and values – is an important means by which to empower individuals in a society. As both a means towards and an outcome of
gaining the capabilities necessary to participate in and contribute to society, education is an
essential enabler in many social aspects, such as economic growth, poverty reduction, public
health, and sustainable development, especially in today’s knowledge society. At the same
time, however, education can still be a social institution that reflects and reproduces the social,
cultural, and economic disadvantages that prevail in the rest of society (Bourdieu & Passeron,
1990). For example, students who are discriminated against socio-culturally
or who are economically
poor are more likely to receive an education that is characterized by inadequate infrastructure,
few qualified teachers and encouraging peers, and outmoded pedagogical practices,
which often results in a lower quality of life.

Abstract

Despite the potential of digital technologies to contribute to the enhancement of access to quality education and the development of lifelong learning competencies, many knowledge
gaps remain in how, for whom and in what contexts digital technologies actually do contribute
to improved, equitable educational outcomes. More research is needed that creates and
tests ‘proven models’ of digital learning in Asian schools and deepens our understanding of the
conditions that are necessary and sufficient for success. And this research needs to build on the
research that has already been done in the region and worldwide. The primary aim of this book
section is to provide snapshots of the current state in research and to identify and explain the
research gaps and future directions of digital learning for development in Asian schools.

Abstract

This book is an invitation to informed and critical participation in the current debate on the role of digital technology in education and a comprehensive introduction to the most relevant issues in this debate. After an early wave of enthusiasm about the emancipative opportunities of the digital «revolution» in education, recent contributions invite caution, if not scepticism. This collection rejects extreme interpretations and establishes a conceptual framework for the critical questioning of this role in terms of concepts, assessments and subversions. This book offers conceptual tools, ideas and insights for further research. It also provides motivation and information to foster active participation in debates and politics and encourages teachers, parents and learners to take part in the making of the future of our societies.

Abstract

"This chapter aims to discuss whether digital interaction (samhandling) in
education requires a new pedagogy, which, to a greater extent than before, takes into
account risks and unforeseen events. The major focus is on digital samhandling between
teachers and students. Future education should prepare students for a world
in which samhandling between individuals is predicted to be increasingly digital. At
the same time, teachers currently refrain from using digital tools in order to interact
pedagogically with students. A “mixed methods” survey of 96 randomly-chosen
schoolteachers in primary and secondary schools in Norway shows that the respondents
give various reasons for using Learning Management Systems (LMS) to a greater
extent for administrative purposes than for pedagogical ones. The main obstacle
is that teachers do not know exactly how digital samhandling should be facilitated
educationally and what the consequences may be for the students and education in
general. The conclusion is that the future is unknown, and the unforeseen is partly
learned through teachers’ professional judgment. Therefore, “new” pedagogy need
not necessarily consist of more educational models and theories of “what works.”
Perhaps the “new” pedagogy should be, to a greater extent, based on samhandling
literacy and problem-based learning?"

Abstract

Designs for Experimentation and Inquiry examines how digital media is reconfiguring the established worlds of research, education, and professional practice. It reflects on the theoretical, methodological, and ethical issues shaping contemporary engagements with digital learning and offers insights for both analysing and intervening in digital learning practices. This insightful volume fills a gap in the current literature by bringing together experiences from Sociocultural Studies of Learning, Science and Technology Studies, and Design Studies. Each chapter is an innovative case study, examining a different aspect of digital media’s role in research, education and professional practice.
