This book explores the underlying assumptions, beliefs, and values of prevailing theories, frameworks, models, and principles in digital technology education through the metaphysical lenses of ontology, epistemology, axiology, and methodology. By proposing meta-connective pedagogy that reflects the ecological, transformative nature of the digitally networked world, Dreamson repositions learners in the networked world for their authentic engagement.

Covering key domains of digital technology education, this volume explores topics such as: meta-connective learning; digital identity formation; emergent communities and co-laboured learning; interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge production; teacher attitudes towards the relationship between learning and technology; learner engagement and online interaction; transformative digital literacy; meta-analysis of technology integration frameworks; methodology for authentic digital engagement; and meta-connective ethics.

Critical Understandings of Digital Technology in Education is the perfect resource for in-service and pre-service teachers, as well as researchers and specialist teachers in technology and ICT education fields, who are looking to enhance their pedagogical understandings of digital technology.
