Abstract

The article addresses the challenges of the spreading of web based technologies for teaching and learning (e-learning environments) in schools. Here, web based technologies are considered in their role of making of new forms of socialities, by looking at the processes of mutual constitution of socialities and technologies in a not deterministic ways. The essay unfolds as follows: a) it suggests to analyse e-learning as a form of networked sociality emerging out of a process of fabrication which implies a translation and disruption of traditional hierarchies, and a materialization in digital environments imbued by logics of attachment/detachment; b) it reflects on the issue of e-learning in schooling by highlighting the contrasts between different values (tradition vs. innovation; humanistic vs. scientific culture, linear vs. circular transmission of knowledge) which accompanies the development of e-learning practices.
