Will the Visualization of Internet Affect Languages of Education?

Abstract : The impact of digitalization on daily activities has become pervasive, even in the Global South. The dominance of colonial languages in education is both strengthened and weakened by latest technologies. The paper asks whether new technologies could bring native language education available to a larger number of children in the world. The great affordances of new technological innovations could be utilized by school systems, and give students tools to enhance their learning. Mobile and visual technologies such as videos and emoji can empower people and give opportunities for wider communication if policies are enacted to support underprivileged people and grassroots activity. However, intensification of research is needed to outline promising futures for education of minorities, disabled and indigenous peoples.
