Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We live in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing world where technology is an integral and pervasive part of our everyday lives. Technology can expose us to complexity and open up new worlds for us to explore, offering opportunities for academic, personal, and professional growth. Technology can also be designed and integrated to support us in navigating demanding environments, working with challenging ideas, interacting and collaborating with others, building communities that enable us to develop in various ways, and creating meaningful and innovative products. In essence, the potential of technology for transforming lives depends in part on how designers, teachers, and learners conceive of it as fulfilling their needs and enabling them to meet their goals.
