Learning and education – material conditions and consequences
The material conditions for education, pedagogy and learning are undergoing considerable changes. New technologies, materials and methodologies emerge and have many consequences for pedagogy, teaching and learning.
Pedagogical situations are increasingly mediated by technology, and the interface between formal and informal learning is becoming more and more blurred. Specialized educational technologies (such as MOOCS) promise to make learning and education much more widely available, and mainstream technologies such as computer-games, smartphones, and social media are increasingly present in education, both as everyday conditions of educational work and as deliberate means for improving educational situations. But this development is uneven and technological divides reappear in many contexts worldwide.
