The Centre for Research in Digital Education is excited to announce the launch of a new journal: Postdigital Science and Education with Springer. Dr Jeremy Knox (Co-director, Data Society) is Associate Editor, while a number of other academics and associates with the centre serve on the editorial board. It is hoped that the new journal will provide space for critical research that directly addresses the role of the digital in the education of our times.
We are increasingly no longer in a world where digital technology and media is separate, virtual, 'other' to a 'natural' human and social life, and education is often at the forefront of these trends. Journals engaged with technology and education tend to view the research field as concerned with the 'effects' of digital media and other technologies on the existing activities of teaching, learning in education, thus continuing to assume a clear division between an authentic educational practice and the imposition of an external, and novel, technology. However, in recent years, we have witnessed a rapid growth in the number of academic books and articles dealing (explicitly and implicitly) with education and research in and for the postdigital age. Postdigital Science and Education fills the gap in the scholarly community as the first academic journal in education, as well as in the humanities and the social sciences, with an explicit focus to postdigital themes and research approaches. It is an exciting hub for a growing body of scholarship in the field and enables communication, dissemination, and community building for researchers, authors, and students.
