Growing a Digital Age Learning Culture

The Role of Technology

Technology “is everywhere and we cannot imagine learning environments not harnessing the potential of digital technology in some way(s).” (pg 48)

“At the same time, the mere presence of technology is not by itself sufficient to innovate learning environments. Nor should innovation be assumed to be synonymous with going digital, as this may only be reproducing traditional methods and pedagogies with a different format.” (pg. 46)
