Technological networks
ByRosemary A. Reynolds
Pages 22

Students’ transnational imaginations are triggered by technology, as network society brings distant people and places together across time and space. The use of technology is explored, from before the students arrived in the United Kingdom and their colleges, technology’s upsides and downsides during their A-level programmes and its effect on choice-making and learning. Without technology, the students learning outcomes would be unknown; they would return to their homelands, and the research on their two-year study programmes would be truncated. For educational research, technology proves an essential tool.
