Education and Technology: Key Issues and Debates

By Neil Selwyn

Will technology replace the school and university? Will technology replace the teacher? What do we really know about technology and learning? Does technology make education more individualised? What does the future hold for technology and education? What can be learnt from the history of technology use in education?

Neil Selwyn takes a critical look at some of the major current debates and controversies concerning digital technologies and education. Focusing on the social as well as the technical aspects of these issues, he addresses fundamental but often unvoiced questions about education and technology. Over the course of eight chapters, the book gives careful thought to the people, practices, processes and structures behind the rapidly increasing use of technologies in education, with an emphasis on the implications of digital technologies for individuals and institutions. The book focuses attention on the connections between recent technology developments and broader changes in education practice, education policy and education theory over the past 10 years. It also challenges us to reflect on future directions and controversies for education in the (post)digital age.

Expanded study questions, annotated further reading and a new glossary of key terms are included to support readers. A companion website links to case study examples, two bonus chapters and much more for teachers and students.

Sage on the Screen: Education, Media, and How We Learn

By Bill Ferster

Since the days of Thomas Edison, technology has held the promise of lowering the cost of education. The fantasy of leveraging a fixed production cost to reach an unlimited number of consumers is an enticing economic proposition, one that has been repeatedly attempted with each new media format, from radio and television to MOOCs, where star academics make online video lectures available to millions of students at little cost. ‘Sage on the Screen’ explores the historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives of using broadcast media to teach by examining a century of efforts to use it at home and in the classroom.

Along the way, Ferster shares stories from teachers, administrators, entrepreneurs, and innovators who promoted the use of cutting-edge technology-while critically evaluating their motives for doing so. Taking a close look at the origins of various media forms, their interrelatedness, and their impact on education thus far, he asks why broadcast media has been so much more successful at entertaining people than it has been at educating them. Accessibly written and full of explanatory art, this book offers fresh insight into the current and future uses of instructional technology, from K-12 through non-institutionally-based learning.
