The research programme Future Technology, Culture and Learning explores the ways in which technology changes and is changed by people and societies. The focus is not only on specific technologies or people, but on the relationships between them. Discussing technology means discussing culture and learning - concepts reflecting that technology always implies processes of change.
The programme’s researchers represent different academic disciplines, including educational research, anthropology, cultural studies, neurobiology, neuropsychology, inclusive education, social psychology, organizational psychology, design and engineering science. This diversity provides a foundation for providing a differentiated perspective on issues and potentials relating to future technologies. Within the field of human-technology relations, the programme’s focus on empirical research constitutes an important contribution.
