Excerpt

It is impossible to predict accurately the future of learning, and most particularly the huge impact ict will have, not only on what, but on how we learn.

We have a long way to go on our journey through the uncharted territory of the pedagogy of ict in this age of ever increasing change. Initiated by the Visual Arts Department of the Arts Council of England, this important book takes a first step, detailing some of the research that has been undertaken to date by teachers, artists and arts organisations into the field of new media.

I welcome this contribution to a debate which must be taken up by learners, teachers and leaders alike.
