Exciting new article examining the potential of emerging and emergent technologies in transforming education spaces and experiences
A new paper, co-authored by the Dr. Charlotte Holland and published in the leading journal ‘Futures’, offers critical insights into the potential of emerging and emergent technologies in transforming education spaces and experiences through the lens of a futures studies approach. A series of vignettes are presented which critically examine the potential of augmented reality technologies, artificial intelligence, and smart materials technologies to transform future learning experiences and learning environments across K-12 education contexts, while also challenging assumptions about, and considering influences on, these futures. The authors acknowledge the vulnerability of the developments highlighted within the vignettes to shifts and changes from a multitude of external factors including but not limited to environmental, economic, social, and political changes at local, national, and global levels. The full paper titled: The digital frontier: Envisioning future technologies impact on the classroom is freely downloadable.
