Connecting, Communicating and Learning through New Media Project

The Connecting, Communicating and Learning through New Media Project explores the impact of digital technologies and media practices on the broader social, cultural and linguistic ecology of remote Indigenous Australia by asking three overarching questions:

  • What are the positive and negative sociocultural consequences and implications of new media technologies and online practices?
  • What are the positive and negative linguistic consequences and implications of new media technologies and online practices?
  • What are the consequences for learning in a context where traditional cultural transmission and language socialisation patterns have been challenged?

Research is being undertaken in a number of communities in remote Indigenous Australia by Dr Inge Kral
