Making Learning a Part of Life in the Digital Age

The digital revolution has resulted in the destruction of a lot of our traditional methods of learning and working. This happens both outside and within the classroom. It is clear that a new way of learning must be created. What can be done to achieve this? It will not only require the creation of digital infrastructures to support learning, but it will also be necessary to tackle the fundamental issues of what education and learning will be to be in the future.

This article addresses how to make learning a vital part of life in the digital age, based on the contributions of teachers and researchers from all over the world. This article is aimed at learners (including parents and students), educators who develop curriculum, researchers and technology experts in learning sciences.

There are a myriad of opinions about what digital-age learning should look like, there’s a broad consensus that we must help support the co-evolution of learning and modern technology for communication. This includes exploring possibilities to develop radical new ideas about learning, as well as establishing techniques that can be supported by modern communication technologies.

The fact that the majority of the current uses of information technologies in learning are still in a “gift-wrapping” form (Fischer, 1998) is one of the major challenges. These technologies are utilized as add-ons to existing frameworks like instructionism, memorization, fixed curriculum and decontextualized learning. This is evident in many studies of comparative research where a face-to -face setting is used as a baseline and is used to study tasks, which include functions that are only available in digital environments.
