What are the potential losses?What underlying values and agendas are implicit?In whose interests does this work? Who benefits in what ways?What are the social problems that digital technology is being presented as a solution to?How responsive to a ‘digital fix’ are these problems likely to be? (Source)

One of the criticisms with this is that the digital is never neutral and often impacts on the pedagogical choices.
