18 SES 12 JS, Ill-being and Well-being: Digital pedagogies and teachers' coping skills
Joint Paper Session NW 08 and NW 18
The advent of digital technology has caused the socio-cultural context for learners to change with almost borderless classrooms encouraging greater learner mobility, choice and access to knowledge. Fioriani (2015) asserts that digital technologies are not mere tools but rather social forces that are increasingly affecting our self-conception (who we are), our mutual interactions (how we socialise); our conception of reality (our metaphysics); and our interactions with reality (our agency). In this new hybrid environment [real and virtual], students need to learn how to prioritise their digital wellbeing to act safely and responsibly in digital environments, manage digital stress, workload and distraction and balance digital with real-world interactions appropriately. It is clear that educators need to rethink 'pedagogy for an age of digital information and communication’ (Beetham & Sharpe, 2013, p.7) to meet the ‘pace and level of learning for each student within the styles and forms of current youth culture' (Laurillard, 2013, p. xi). This is optimised in the hands of a trained and digitally literate teacher (ibid).
