When beyond the comfort zone is the comfort zone

Varan, D. (2004) When beyond the comfort zone is the comfort zone. In: ASCILITE 2004 Conference, 5 - 8 December 2004, Perth, W.A..


The advent of digital technologies is rapidly changing the ways in which people experience media characterised primarily by an increasing degree of control, choice and interaction. In this keynote presentation Professor Varan will explore how stepping out of our comfort zone as educators will often require that we enter into the comfort zone of our students, working to capitalise on new frontiers enabled through digital technologies. Professor Varan will share findings from a range of studies designed to better understand the psychology of the interactive viewer and explore their implications for new approaches to mediated education.
