From Blogs to Bombs: The Future of Digital Technologies in Education
This item is out of print.
From Blogs to Bombs is a comprehensive exploration of issues such as digital literacy, language change, online socialisation, cyberbullying, cyberpredation, censorship, surveillance, the law, medical and biological issues, and the environment.
In an age of technological revolution that is fast leaving many behind, Mark Pegrum navigates growing concerns surrounding the use of increased technology in the classroom. Pegrum seeks to emphasise the ‘pro’s’ and ‘con’s’ of rising classroom technology and the need for a more complex understanding of technological systems and their potential role in education.
He intersects current theories on educative technology and provides a balanced perspective on the pedagogical, social, sociopolitical and ecological implications of technological growth in contemporary society.
A must read for all educators and education policy makers.
