Digital Pedagogy

Michael Fullan is often quoted as saying technology first, pedagogy second. Neil Selwyn poses a series of questions associated with notion of digital pedagogy:

What is actually new here?What are the unintended consequences or second-order effects?What are the potential gains? What are the potential losses?What underlying values and agendas are implicit?In whose interests does this work? Who benefits in what ways?What are the social problems that digital technology is being presented as a solution to?How responsive to a ‘digital fix’ are these problems likely to be? source

One of the criticisms with this is that the digital is never neutral and often impacts on the pedagogical choices.
