Exploring affordances in digital school environments: A media ecological study at Ørestad Gymnasium

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

The paper presents a media ecological understanding of media education and reports from an empirical study on the use of digital media at Ørestad Gymnasium in Copenhagen. An ecological model for e-learning is formed which serves as a guide for understanding how digital media elicit a new educational environment. The model highlights four environmental aspects influenced by media: teachers, students, didactical methods and curriculum.
Media ecology also implies studying media as species that are competing for our attention and usage. The paper uses this perspective to ask how the students choose between and combine different media in their learning activities. These questions are the focus of the empirical study.
