Abstract: Digital media and learning has become a critical area for educational research in the twenty-first century. Yet little research has been carried out on the practical and conceptual implications for the school curriculum in the digital age. This report asks a very simple question: what might be the future of the curriculum in the digital age? It examines a series of twenty-first century curriculum innovations in order to show how various ideas about the future curriculum are now being styled into school practice, and it seeks to understand the emerging issues raised by meshing the curriculum and digital media together. It explores a range of contemporary social, political, economic, and cultural issues facing the future of the curriculum and examines the production of ideas about the practical organization and planning of a future curriculum. What kinds of visions for the curriculum of the future are being imagined, invented, and promoted? How is the curriculum of the future being made thinakble, intelligible and practicable as a problem requiring reformatory intervention?
