The Postdigital School

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapterpeer-review


Research into postdigital education has often been preoccupied with system level infrastructure and policy, rather than the messy realities of the postdigital school. Schools have been criticised for being both too digital and not digital enough. They are held simultaneously to be insufficiently digital to prepare students for the future and increasingly dominated by commercial providers and data mining algorithms. As a result, the postdigital school takes many forms (e.g., datafied, platformized) and the research that has examined them has tended to explore effects on students and teachers that are at best ambiguous and propose new ways to use digital technologies to empower them and meet their needs.
