Digital technology is ubiquitous – tracking our movements, recording our consumer purchases, and utilised extensively in our classrooms.
What is the future for education in the time of Facebook? How does the phenomenon of social media deepen or diminish the concept of education for citizenship? What are the new possibilities and pitfalls posed to democracy in this brave new world? To what extent can digital technologies be utilised for the benefit of those marginalised within our society?
Panellists from within the Christian tradition will explore these concepts of technology, education, and citizenship, and reflect on how we might live well in an age of “surveillance capitalism.”
