"The latest issue of the online open journal eLearn Centre Research Paper Series has just been published. Issue 5 considers Communication and Learning in a Digital Age, and features papers from a number of scholars in the field, including my own paper on current research perspectives on digital literacies. The papers originate from a conference held in Barcelona in the Summer of 2012. Here is the introduction, written by Sandra Sanz and Amalia Creus (Open University of Catalonia):
"Experience of time and technology also has an important impact on learning. The drastic reduction on lifetime of knowledge, connected with the overflow of information and fragmentation of sources, are just some of the features that are changing the way we learn. This situation challenges us to think more creatively about the interaction between communication technologies and learning, and to explore how our educational models are being impacted by the processes of social change that come with digitalization, the emergence of social media and the Web 2.0.
