In different sociocultural contexts, education has witnessed the emergence of various institutional and informal initiatives that attempt to understand changes provoked by the digital culture in recent years. Although the “new”paradigms point to certain trends and indicate the need for innovative and transformative practices in education and learning environments, our role inthis context of change and how we should proceed is not always clear. This educational landscape in contemporary society, increasingly marked by digital culture, challenges public policies, pedagogical practices, educational research, and new methodologies for teaching and learning.
Various examinations of this issue reveal the lack of dialog among these realms. In what way have public policies for the insertion of technologies in schools dialoged with research about this issue? How have different sociocultural contexts faced the challenge of social, political, cultural and digital inclusion? In what way can the scientific and academic debate enrich and qualify the diversity of pedagogical and cultural practices and the forms of appropriation of technology in schools? To what degree are the theoretical-methodological approaches to research able to capture and analyze the diversity of phenomenon that emerge from the digital culture? How can the new methodologies transform or enrich the teaching and learning processes? This dossier is proposed to stimulate dialog about these questions and tensions.
We invite researchers, professors, scholars, critics and artists who investigate the changes and innovations in the new culture of digital education to send their proposals.
