Welcome

This Digital Futures for Learning resource gives you the opportunity to consider the trajectory and implications of digital technologies for the future of learning. It takes as its starting point a set of key themes from several iterations of the Digital Futures for Learning course on the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh – trust, resistance, mess, failure, entanglement, and privacy and surveillance. It uses these themes to guide exploration of emerging practices and technologies. It encourages you to ask: how are more established digital practices evolving? How will new digital technologies and trends impact on learning? How will the students and teachers of tomorrow construct their learning environments and practices?

The content on this site was drawn from the 2017/18 and 2019/20 instances of the  course, led by  Jen Ross (co-taught in 2017 by Sian Bayne, and in 2019 by Stuart Allan) . The twitter hashtag for the course is #dfled – please feel free to tweet with us!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the course organiser, Jen Ross.
