Seminars on Technology & Learning

9 08 2004

During this fall the research program that I am part of, Technology and Learning, will host a series of seminars relating to our research.

You can find more information on the seminar series and the research program here.

During the 20th century the use of technology has often been combined with expectations on technology as a rejuvenating force in pedagogics – these modernizations have more often than not been arduous to fulfill. Implementation of technology often takes longer than expected due to inertia emanating from disregard of social, cultural and economic factors. The trust that technology advocates put in educational technology has generally met with resistance from both students and teachers. The split between educational reality and vision is also noticeable in contemporary belief in different online educational schemes in higher education, both nationally and internationally.

In the research program Technology and Learning we investigate the relation between technology and learning from techno-sociological and pedagogical perspectives. The educational system is one of the social fields where the encounter between new technology and social inertia is made apparent.
