Curricula Shifts in a Digital Age (A
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:
- to re-conceptualize and add to the discourse of what it means for students to be literate and numerate in the 21st century.
- to understand how digital technologies expand and deepen understandings of school-based disciplines.
- to examine how digital technologies broaden and influence notions of pedagogy, citizenship, and community.
