06 SES 03, Digital Media: Innovative Use and Reluctance
Some international textbooks on digital technology in teaching and learning claim a more or less dramatic turn in education and in lifelong learning. Some colleagues are talking about “Pedagogy 2.0” (McLoughlin & Lee 2011). Skeptic voices like Neil Selwyn point out, that neither school (Selwyn 2011) nor informal adult learning (Selwyn 2005) in UK has changed fundamentally. Eickelmann (2011) investigated in Germany factors that support or hinder the sustainable ICT implementation in schools. We (Grell & Rau 2009, 2011) investigated two years ago, using a sample of case studies (e.g. Cole 2009, Wheeler 2011), problems of student engagement when implementing participatory web technologies in higher education. In this study we focus on the people, professional educators and students, who show reluctance to the process of implementation of digital technologies in education. The aims of this study were (1) to construct a clear picture of failure of implementing digital technologies in different educational settings and (2) to critically discuss the attempts to reduce unintended side-effects like resistance and reluctance of professionals and students.
