What is a Digital World?
Week one – Topic one
Living in a digital world has implications for education: Technology has changed the way that students learn and how educators teach. Topic one investigated concepts of the digital world and how emerging technologies are changing our lives and the impact on educators and the digital generation. I have created a Prezi presentation to illustrate and summarise the effects of technology in an educational context.
