The digital revolution has resulted in the destruction of many of our traditional methods of working and learning. This is happening both in and inside the classroom. It is clear that a new paradigm of learning needs to be established. How can this be accomplished? It’s not just about the creation of digital infrastructures to support learning however, it will have to tackle the most fundamental questions of what education and learning is for in the future.
This article explores ways to integrate learning into every day life in the digital era, drawing on contributions from researchers and teachers all over the world. This article is intended for learners (including parents and students), educators, curriculum developers, technology experts and researchers in learning sciences.
There are a variety of opinions on what education in the digital age should be. However there is a general consensus that we must promote the co-evolution of learning and technology for communication. This means exploring the possibilities for radical new concepts of learning and for developing innovative techniques that can be supported by modern communication technologies.
The fact that the majority of present applications of information technology in education remain an “gift-wrapping” form (Fischer, 1998) is among the major challenges. These technologies are added to existing frameworks, including instructionism and fixed curriculum. They also function as a complement to decontextualized or uncontextualized learning. Many comparative studies employ an environment that is a face-to-face base. This restricts the study to tasks or functions that can only be performed digitally.
