This chapter analyzes the distinctive features of what are often today called the “new media,” a range of information and communications media using digital technologies, including technologies for the creation and storage of text, still and moving images and sound, and the distribution of this content through local computing systems and the Internet. The relationships of these new media to education vary from attempts at transliteration of the classroom and heritage learning relationships into the digital media, to educational projects as fundamental as changing the social relationships of learning.
