Digital education: ”education-with” / ”education-about” distinction and the teleological definition

  • Despite being an object of multi-billion public policies and private sector initiatives, the term ”digital education” seems to lack a clear, unambigous, lexicon-ready definition. A closer analysis reveals that in common parlance, the term is used to denote phenomena related to overlapping but distinct topics like ”technology”, ”media” or ”informatics”. Such polysemy implies an overall lack of clarity which a public debate about education policies should rather avoid. For this reason, we propose to start sorting things out by defining the term ”digital education” in terms of dichotomy of two subordinated concepts, which we label as ”education-about-digital” and ”education-with-digital”. Postulation of this dichotomy combined with analysis of "school's mission" as defined in the legal codices of Land Berlin naturally leads to ”teleological definition” which delimits the concept of digital education in terms of its ideal human result.
