Neil Selwyn was interviewed recently for the Digitalsamtal (Digital Chat) podcast by Swedish journalist Anders Thoresson. The 30 minute conversation (which switches to English after the first 30 seconds!) covers a range of issues brought up in a keynote presentation that Neil had just given to the 2017 Makerdays conference in Gothenburg. Topics include the push for coding in schools, ways of developing students' understandings of personal data, and supporting schools to make appropriate (non)use of technology.
We are very pleased to announce the publication of a new book from our ARC-funded Discovery Project on schools and digital technology. Published by Routledge, 'Everyday Schooling in the Digital Age' is an in-depth ethnography of the realities of digital technology across three contrasting Australian high schools.
