Peters, M. A.; Jandrić, P.; & Means, A. J. (Eds.). (2019). Education and Technological Unemployment. Singapore: Springer.

This book examines the challenge of accelerating automation, and argues that countering and adapting to this challenge requires new methodological, philosophical, scientific, sociological, economic, ethical, and political perspectives that fundamentally rethink the categories of work and education. What is required is political will and social vision to respond to the question: What is the role of education in a digital age characterized by potential mass technological unemployment?

Today’s technologies are beginning to cost more jobs than they create – and this trend will continue. There have been many proposed solutions to this problem, and they invariably involve an educational vision. Yet, in a world that simply doesn’t offer enough work for everyone, education is clearly not a panacea for technological unemployment.

This collection presents responses to this question from a wide spectrum of disciplines, including but not limited to education studies, philosophy, history, politics, sociology, psychology, and economics.

Peters, M. A. & Jandrić, P. (2018). The Digital University: A Dialogue and Manifesto. New York: Peter Lang. 

 

The Digital University: A dialogue and manifesto focuses on teaching, learning and research in the age of the digital reason and their relationships to the so-called knowledge economy. The first part of the book, ‘The university in the epoch of digital reason’, presents authors' insights into the nature of the contemporary university. The second part of the book, ‘Collective intelligence and the co-creation of social goods’, explores various collective ways of knowledge creation, dissemination, and education. The third part of the book, ‘Digital teaching, digital learning and digital science’, presents an ongoing series of one-to one dialogues between Michael Adrian Peters and Petar Jandrić about philosophy of education in the age of digital reason, relationships between learning, creative col(labor)ation, and knowledge cultures, digital reading, digital self, digital being, radical openness, creative labour, and the co-production of symbolic goods. Situated in, against, and beyond the current state of affairs, the book ends with the Digital University Manifesto which explores what is to be done in and for a better future of the digital university.

Jandrić, P. (2017). Learning in the Age of Digital Reason. Rotterdam: Sense. 

Learning in the Age of Digital Reason brings 16 in-depth dialogues between Petar Jandrić and leading scholars and practitioners in diverse fields of history, philosophy, media theory, education, practice, activism, and arts. The book creates a postdisciplinary snapshot of our reality, and the ways we experience that reality, at the moment here and now. lt historicises our current views on human learning, and experiments with collective knowledge making and the relationships between theory and practice. lt stands firmly at the side of the weak and the oppressed, and aims at critical emancipation. Learning in the Age of Digital Reason is playful and serious. lt addresses important issues of our times and avoids the omnipresent (academic) sin of pretentiousness, thus making an important statement: research and education can be sexy. Interlocutors presented in the book (in order of appearance): Larry Cuban, Andrew Feenberg, Michael Adrian Peters, Fred Turner, Richard Barbrook, McKenzie Wark, Henry Giroux, Peter McLaren, Siân Bayne, Howard Rheingold, Astra Taylor, Marcell Mars, Tomislav Medak, Ana Kuzmanić, Paul Levinson, Kathy Rae Huffman, Ana Peraica, Dmitry Vilensky (Chto Delat?), Christine Sinclair, and Hamish Macleod.

Jandrić, P. & Boras, D. (Eds.). (2015). Critical Learning in Digital Networks. New York: Springer.

This ambitious multidisciplinary volume assembles diverse critical-theory approaches to the current and future states of networked learning. Expert contributors expand upon the existing literature by analyzing the ethical aspects of networked learning and the ongoing need for more open, inclusive, and socially engaged educational practice. Chapters explore in depth evolving concepts of real and virtual, the processes of learning in, against, and beyond the internet, and the role of critical pedagogy in improving social conditions. In all, coverage is both realistic and positive about the potential of digital technologies in higher education as well as social and academic challenges on the horizon.

Jandrić, P. (2019). Znanje u digitalnom dobu. Razgovori s djecom jedne male revolucije. Preveo Dinko Telećan. Zagreb: Jesenski i Turk. 

 

 

 

Znanje u digitalnom dobu donosi šesnaest razgovora sa znanstvenicima i stručnjacima iz veoma raznorodnih područja: povijesti, filozofije, medij-ske teorije, obrazovnih znanosti, aktivizma i umjetnosti. To je svojevrstan postdisciplinarni presjek naše zbilje, i načina na koji tu zbilju doživljavamo, sada i ovdje. Aktualne poglede na znanje i učenje autor prikazuje u njiho-voj povijesnosti, te tako otkriva odnose teorije s praksom. Znanje u digital-nom dobu zaigrana je i ozbiljna knjiga. Ona otvara važna pitanja našega vremena ali izbjegava akademski grijeh pretencioznosti i pokazuje kako učenje i istraživanje može biti privlačno.
