The digital revolution has resulted in the elimination of many of our traditional ways of working and learning. This is happening both in and within the classroom. It is evident that a new approach to learning needs to be established. But how will this be achieved? It’s not just about creating a digital infrastructure that supports learning but it will also be necessary to tackle the fundamental issues of what education and learning will be to be in the future.

This article addresses how to make learning a vital part of our lives in the digital age, drawing upon the contributions of teachers and researchers from all over the world. It is written for learners (including parents and students) educators as well as curriculum designers tech experts as well as researchers in the field of learning sciences, and the decision-makers.

There are a myriad of opinions on what education in the digital age should look like. However there is a broad consensus that we must promote the co-evolution between learning and the latest technology of communication. This should include exploring new possibilities for radically different concepts of education as well as to develop innovative ways of teaching that are supported by modern communication technology.

One of the biggest issues is that most current uses of the latest information technologies for learning remain a form of «gift wrapping» (Fischer, 1998). These technologies are incorporated into existing frameworks like instructionism and fixed curriculum. They also serve as a supplement to decontextualized, or uncontextualized, learning. Many comparative studies utilize the face-to-face setting as a baseline. This limits the study to specific tasks and functions that can only be obtained digitally.
