Evolvability: a world of persistent ambient digital culture

Dean Groom

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Much has been written about the current attitude, skill, attention span, preferences and knowledge of the current generation growing up online. There is little consensus on which educational technologies are more or less valid, yet broad agreement that the generally fast-paced uptake of technology in society will continually bring new challenges and problems for educators still learning to develop and manage socially inclusive learning environments. Much discussion surrounds four things: growth, constraint, collapse and transformation. This article discusses the importance of digital culture in pedagogical practice by considering how social frameworks and boundaries are impacting on learning and teaching.
