About the eBook

Does the internet enhance education or erode standards? Does it empower kids or endanger them? Does it mean more freedom or more surveillance? The short answer is: all of the above. Digital technologies - including computing and mobile technologies - are among the most widely discussed subjects of our time, yet the way they affect young people, education and society as a whole is poorly understood. Swamped by competing arguments, many of us have difficulty deciding which experts to listen to or which claims to believe. This book weaves together the many discussions now taking place. Burying some common fallacies, it sketches out the big picture - we cannot hope to understand the implications of digital technologies unless we acknowledge their technological, pedagogical, social, sociopolitical and even ecological effects. Only then can we make informed decisions about future developments in education and beyond.
