We are living in a period when new social structures arise in the communicative space and wake of digital media. This means that we must respond to a changing social world within all social spheres, including economy, work life, love relations and, last but not least, education. The issue we are dealing with in this article is how one should respond educationally to the new media situation. Or more precisely: What should or could Bildung (edification) be within the current environment of new media. It draws on Luhmann (2006), Biesta (2006), Klafki (2014) and Kant (1784), describing what Bildung is, seen from the point of view of the enlightenment tradition, and sets out to discuss and analyse how ideas of Bildung could be used in education today and tomorrow. The paper draws on empirical findings from the Socio Media Education Experiment, a Danish action research project in an upper secondary school from 2011-2014 (Tække & Paulsen 2013a, 2015a, 2016a, 2016b)
