The focus of this literature review addresses the opportunities that new media can have for design and technology education at the university level. Advances in public and technology interaction has changed drastically with the impact of New Media and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). This research investigates the role of New Media and Information and Communication Technologies for design and technology education. As more young people participate in a greater variety of new communication modalities, new studies of these forms of communication--and new methods of studying such communication tools--need to be developed. This research will provide unique insights and recommendations for how new approaches of analysing and understanding New Media and ICTs can enrich everyday pedagogic practices in design and technology education. In particular, scenarios for New Media applications will be applied to design and technology education. It is argued that the results from this research and literature review will have promising implications for the design of New Media applications appropriate to the educational content they have been researched in.
