How is technology seen in young people’s visions of future education systems?
Learning, Media and Technology, 33(2) pp. 101–114.
This research captured the views of young people regarding their views of ‘how learning should be in the future’. Four focus groups were run with different groups of school-age pupils. The ways in which technology was seen within these discussions were analysed. The findings noted that the explicit use of technological innovations, and predicted innovations, was rarely seen as having a significant impact on learning, rather that the technology was used in line with the models of learning derived from the participant’s best current experiences of learning and education. Technology was, therefore, seen as something which could make current learning practices more efficient but did not transform the learning process.
