Welcome to Refracted!

Join the inter- & trans-disciplinary EdTech, Learning Sciences, education and society dialogue.

About Refracted

Started by Carla Aerts, an EdTech thought leader. Considering EdTech, learning and teaching in siloes, like any other issue in our world, can no longer hold. Research in libraries, unshared, unread or not understood by a wider audience, needs widening and translation, supporting multi-disciplinary dialogue and engagement.

Time to get out of the silos through dialogue, engagement and questioning beyond one's own discipline, refracted by another.

Why You Should Join

A belief in dialogue, debate, discuss and knowledge-share lies at the heart of this network, complemented by research. Although focusing on EdTech, learning sciences and education... this inter- and transdisciplinary network wants to reach well beyond that.

A Big Thanks

Peer-review is not necessary, but when posting please state if the paper is/is not peer reviewed. 

Thank you.
