Abstract

Being connected through online and digital technologies has become increasingly commonplace over the past 20 years, but our understanding of the effect this has on where and how people learn has tended to be patchy at best. In Rethinking Learning in an Age of Digital Fluency: Is being digitally tethered a new learning nexus? Maggi Savin-Baden examines the impact of increasing digital connectedness and how this connectivity might affect the culture of learning now, and in the future. I welcome this book as a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion that pulls together a wide range of research and experiences, and does not avoid controversy where it is found.
