  2. Digital Pedagogy
    “Digital Pedagogy is precisely not about using digital technologies
    for teaching and, rather, about approaching those tools from a
    critical pedagogical perspective. So, it is as much about using
    digital tools thoughtfully as it is about deciding when not to use
    digital tools, and about paying attention to the impact of digital
    tools on learning.”
