Learning in the digital age: inside and outside school

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Contribution to Journal)peer-review


If learning goes far beyond the walls of school, we need to recognize and integrate the knowledge conveyed through classrooms with the experiences schoolchildren have outside them. Upon this purpose, we shall refer to the relation of communication with education, about which there is an academic concern since the 1980’s, increased and extended on the digital era. From that outlook, we cannot left education on the margins of social and technological innovation, since learning processes are being affected by the ties the younger generations keep with the media. If education is already ongoing in learning communities through the exploration done in the Internet, for example, it is really im-portant to understand and to study about what do children and teenagers know, so as their references and opinions related with the social everyday world.
