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 the key themes of trust, resistance and mess, and uses them 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 instance of the Digital Futures for Learning course, led by Dr Jen Ross and Professor Sian Bayne, and part of the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh. This instance of the course was linked to the University of Edinburgh’s Near Future Teaching project, and parts of the content are being made available in an open access format so that other students and staff at the University, and beyond, can engage with the discussions and materials developed throughout the course. 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.
