Perspectives on Education in the Digital Age


About the Series

The process of digitalization is leading to a fundamental social change affecting all spheres of social life. With this, one has to be aware that digitalization is inevitable but, at the same, a social product. This means that digitalization and media change generally does not occur like a force of nature. It is a cultural manifestation and has to be discussed as such. The social dimension of digitization has ambivalent effects. Thus, digitalization provides the communicative basis for decentralism and pluralism. Simultaneously, the question of self-determination in times of data tracking is a central point of criticism. All these societal effects of digitalization also affect the educational field. There is a need for re-structuring key concepts such as learning, teaching, and education that considers socio-economic and cultural changes in the pedagogical field.

In the context of an increasingly differentiated society, aspects like diversity and emancipation via and within education in the digital age are central aspects for a proper understanding of digital-based teaching and learning in theory and practice.

To develop such digital-based teaching and learning in theory and practice, contemporary media education and e-learning research face the challenge of opening up to a transdisciplinary dialogue with other scientific disciplines. Such a dialogue makes it possible to address and discuss education's complexity in the digital age drawing knowledge and research results from different fields. The Series provides a forum for such a dialogue, for discussions and a critical, integrative analysis of social transformations in the digital age, drawn from different fields such as the humanities, social sciences, and economics. The Series aims to analyze the implications of cultural change on education in the digital age by bringing together transdisciplinary dialogue and different theoretical approaches.
