Curricula Shifts in a Digital Age (A Philosophical Inquiry)

Summary: This philosophical study examines how new technologies are influencing, challenging, and changing current conceptions of the nature and structure of school-based disciplines. It has three broad aims:

  1. to re-conceptualize and add to the discourse of what it means for students to be literate and numerate in the 21st century.
  2. to understand how digital technologies expand and deepen understandings of school-based disciplines.
  3. to examine how digital technologies broaden and influence notions of pedagogy, citizenship, and community.
