I am very happy and at the same time extremely proud that our book has recently been published:

Vansieleghem, N., Vlieghe, J. & Zahn, M. (Eds.) (2019) Education in the Age of the Screen. Possibilities and Transformations in Technology. London: Routlegde.

The book is the result of a three-part series of International Research Seminars Making School in the Age of the Screen.This event was held in the academic year 20162017 at Liverpool Hope University (UK) and LUCA School of Arts Ghent (Belgium), and it was sponsored by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain (PESGB) Large Grant Scheme. We are grateful for the institutional and financial support we received from these organizations, and we would likewise like to thank the many colleagues and students who participated to the seminar series, as well as the editorial team of Routledge we worked with.

In particular I would like to thank my co-editors for the great cooperation on this book. It was a pleasure!

About the book
This edited volume brings together experts from across the field of education to explore how traditional pedagogic and didactic forms and processes are changing, or even disappearing, as a result of new technologies being used for education and learning.
Considering the use, opportunites and limitations of technologies including interactive whiteboards, tablets, smart phones, search engines and social media platforms, chapters draw on primary and secondary research to illustrate the wide-reaching and often salient changes which new digital technologies are introducing into educational environments and learning practices around the world. Neither claiming that traditional forms of learning must be replaced, nor calling for a restoration of the school, Education in the Age of the Screen offers a nuanced exploration of the implications of digitization for education. Taking a broad view on education as a social and cultural phenomenon, the volume focuses on three major dimensions: the wider conditions against the background of which we educate and are educated today, detailed examples of aesthetic practices and educational initiatives in the current media culture, and concrete answers to the challenges that come our way.
With contributions from Samira Alirezabeigi, Anna-Caterina Dalmasso, Mathias Decuypere, Maria Fannin, Norm Friesen, Annemarie Hahn,  Kristin Klein, Frank Maet, Torsten Meyer, Stefano Oliverio, Nancy Vansieleghem, Joris Vlieghe, D-M Withers and Manuel Zahn.

Tagung »Posthumanstische Medienbildung? Bildungstheoretische Positionen nach Anthropozentrismus und Humanismus«

Das zweitägige, interdisziplinäre Symposium »Posthumanstische Medienbildung? Bildungstheoretische Positionen nach Anthropozentrismus und Humanismus« bringt am 25. & 26.10.2019 Wissenschaftler*innen unterschiedlicher disziplinärer Hintergründe zusammen, die in den Themenfeldern Posthumanismus, Medien- und Bildungstheorie und Digitalisierung tätig sind. Ziel ist es zuerst, verschiedene trans- und posthumanistische Positionen kritisch zu diskutieren. Darüber hinaus werden An- und Ausschlüsse, Passungen und Reibungspunkte zwischen Posthumanismus, Medien- und Bildungstheorie eruiert, um Anregungspotentiale für die Theoriegenerierung im Bereich der Ästhetischen Bildung und der Medienpädagogik auszuloten.
