This unit discusses ways in which our lives are ordered by the state. The focus is largely on the question ‘How is society made and repaired?’ But you will also be looking at questions of differences and inequalities. You may find you need to work harder to see the significance of this second key question, but the effort will be worthwhile.

In this short course, we are going to explore two emergent and contrasting concepts which are beginning to feature more prominently in discussions around education and digital technology: postdigital education and Education 4.0. In the process of doing so, the course aims to demonstrate the value of adopting a holistic approach towards the analysis and critique of educational technologies and imaginaries, which encompasses not only technological but also socio-cultural and political perspectives.In Part 1, we will consider the connotations of the terms postdigital education and Education 4.0 and reflect on the importance of the terminology we use to frame our conceptions and discussions of education, technology and the relationship between them. In Parts 2 and 3, we will attempt to unpack the postdigital and consider how it might be applied to education. In Part 4, we will learn more about the emergence and characteristics of the Education 4.0 imaginary. In Part 5, we will adopt a more critical stance towards Education 4.0, devoting particular attention to two of its core technologies - virtual reality and learning analytics - in order to identify its potential strengths, limitations and ideological foundations.Now let's get started!

This course was originally part of the MA Programme in Education but could also be studied on its own. The last presentation of this course was February 2004. The course aimed to develop a teacher’s understanding of issues fundamental to the analysis of change in the school. Both professional and school development were considered, linking teaching using ICT (information and communication technology) to theoretical concepts. Methods such as ‘evidence-based’ practice and crticial evaluation were explored in relation to personal and school priorities.
