Hacking Education in a Digital Age: Teacher Education, Curriculum, and Literacies
Editors: Nicholas Ng-A-Fook, Sarah Pratt, Bryan Smith, and Linda Radford
Storying A Call for Chapter Proposals: The institutional winds that once supported traditional organizational frameworks for public education have shifted to meet the demands of a transnational globalized digital knowledge economy. In response, teacher education programs and school boards have rewired their infrastructure and are now poised to implement different curricular programs and pedagogical strategies in the name of economic and social innovation for the twenty-first century. Now the digital curriculum must be hardwired for Smartphones, iPads, iPods, and so on—where teachers and students’ bodies are plugged in more readily to the globalized multinational social imaginary and its virtual reality.
