Over my recent sabbatical I worked with the idea of utopia, in particular Ruth Levitas’s Utopia as Method, in order to try to understand how we might move digital education – and education generally – toward a more hopeful future. The paper weaves the themes of emergence, openness and desire through the archaeologies, ontologies and potential architectures of a better digital education.

In doing this, it became part analysis, part review, part reflection and part manifesto. Anyway, it’s out now (thanks to the team at Learning, Media and Technology) and I’d very much welcome any thoughts or feedback.

Find the paper here – it’s open access. If you’d rather watch a video, my work-in-progress talk this year at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities gives a good overview.
