En el marc de les activitats formatives organitzades per les comissions acadèmiques dels programes de postgrau MIPE i DIPE i en col·laboració amb Red Trobades (www.redencuentros.org) el professor Neil Selwyn impartirà la conferència titulada “És la tecnologia bona per a l’educació?”. El Dr. Neil Selwyn és professor de la Facultat d’Educació de la Universitat de Monash, Austràlia.

Resum de la conferència: Digital technologies are a key feature of contemporary education. Schools, colleges and universities operate along high-tech lines, while alternate forms of online education have emerged to challenge the dominance of traditional institutions. According to many experts, the rapid digitization of education over the past ten years has undoubtedly been a ‘good thing’.

In this conference (based from the book: Is Technology Good For Education?) Dr. Selwyn will offer a critical counterpoint to this received wisdom, challenging some of the central ways in which digital technology is presumed to be positively affecting education. Instead Dr. Selwyn considers what is being lost as digital technologies become ever more integral to education provision and engagement. Crucially, he questions the values, agendas and interests that stand to gain most from the rise of digital education.

This concise, up-to-the-minute analysis concludes by considering alternate approaches that might be capable of rescuing and perhaps revitalizing the ideals of public education, while not denying the possibilities of digital technology altogether.
