Epistemological Approaches to Digital Learning in Educational Contexts is dedicated to topical issues in school education and pedagogical science related to the learning process in a technology and media enriched environment. It opens up discussions on the development of the educational science sector and strategies for smart pedagogy to promote synergy between technology and pedagogy to support students in the learning process.

The book presents different perspectives on how to evaluate the enhancement of technology use, which can help improve Computational Thinking skills. It also helps in identifying the changes in pupils’ algorithmic thinking through programming in Scratch 2.0. The book further explores the way digitally-mediated materiality may support teaching practice and proposes tools that are available for the educational curator in a digital learning environment.

This book will be of great interest to academics, researchers, and post-graduate students in the fields of higher education, vocational education, and digital learning.

About the Series

Perspectives on Education in the Digital Age

The process of digitalization is leading to a fundamental social change affecting all spheres of social life. In the pedagogical field there is a need for re-structuring key concepts such as learning, teaching and education that considers socio-economic and cultural changes.

Perspectives on Education in the Digital Age explores the process of coming to terms with socio-economic and socio-cultural shifts arising from digitalization and discusses this process with reference to its effects on education. The Series provides a forum for discussion of critical, integrative analyses of social transformations in the digital age, drawn from different fields such as the humanities, social sciences and economics. The aim of the Series is to analyse the implications of cultural change on education in the digital age by bringing together transdisciplinary dialogue and different theoretical approaches.
