The Human Work of Critical Digital Pedagogy
There is no neat and tidy technological solution to the challenges we presently face in education. Traditional models for instructional design fail to anticipate the needs and struggles of the complex students who show up to our classes. A critical digital pedagogy argues that we are better users of technology when we think critically about the nature and effects of that technology. How does a reflective, critical pedagogy translate into digital space. Can the necessary dialogue flourish within Web-based tools, social media platforms, or learning management systems? How can we build platforms and flexible models that support learning across age, race, gender, culture, ability, geography? What are the specific affordances and limitations of technology toward these ends?
