Abstract

The question of this paper is how we can understand the concept of Bildung in
the time of digital media seen from a Klafkian perspective. It draws on Klafki
(2014) by extrapolating what he suggest is the main features of Bildung,
answering six questions: how can education 1. Foster persons who can improve
the world? 2 Cultivate the capability to self-guidance, co-guidance and solidarity?
3. Secure that everybody get equality of chances of Bildung? 4. That everybody
learn to address epochal key problems? 5. Develop all-round (versatile)
interests? 6. Learn general skills and habits? These six features of Bildung are
then discussed in regard to digital media. We do this by relating the Klafkian
concept of Bildung to (1) a general theory about how schools seem to respond to
the new digital challenges and possibilities. Our main point is that these
responses can be divided into three waves, bringing about different levels of
what we from a Klafkian perspective call Digital Bildung. (2) We relate the
Klafkian concept of Bildung to an action research experiment called Socio Media
Education (SME). In this research project we have worked together with teachers
in an upper secondary school-class, aiming at moving from wave one to wave two
and from wave two to wave three. In this paper we analyse to which degree the
Socio Media Experiment provides Digital Bildung in the Klafkian sense we
develop.
