Cultivating Wisdom through Digital Learning Technologies
Kok, Ayse
Journal of Educational Technology, v6 n2 p12-19 Jul-Sep 2009
The word "wisdom" is rarely seen in contemporary technology and learning discourse. This conceptual paper aims to provide some clear principles that answer the question: How can we establish wisdom in complex learning networks? By considering the nature of contemporary calls for wisdom the paper provides a metatheoretical framework to evaluate the appropriateness of the characteristics of learning technologies in the postmodern context. By taking into account the complexities of paradox and uncertainty in contemporary life, the paper also indicates where future research would be best directed and consider how wisdom might practically be applied via use of learning technologies.
