Abstract

This book is an outcome of a provocation paper1 prepared by Neil Selwyn (2012) for a conference concerned with critical perspectives on learning with new media. In his paper, Selwyn argued that <<Education and technology could be classed as an area of scholarship whose time is yet to come … As an area of academic study, education and technology is populated by a transient ragbag of individuals hailing from the learning sciences, social psychology, computer science, teacher education, media studies, sociology and beyond. As such, this is a “mongrel” area of scholarship that suffers from the absence of any long-term collective obligation amongst its participants to develop their “(non)field” of study into anything more than the sum of its parts. (p. 6)>>
