Schools and Schooling in the digital Age

What future is there for schools and schooling in the digital age? Do digital technologies herald the end of the ‘industrial-era’ institution of the school altogether? Alternatively, should schools be analogue ‘fortresses’ that offer respite from our otherwise technology-saturated lives?

Intrigued? This the title and extract from the abstract of a public lecture being given by Neil Selwyn of the London Knowledge Lab. The lecture will take place in Melbourne tomorrow evening. It’s being hosted by the Learning and New Media Group, Faculty of Education, Monash University.
