DIGITAL CULTURE AND DIGITAGOGY: A LIFE OF A DIGITAL CULTURALIST AND A DIGITAGOGIST

Qismullah Yusuf, Yunisrina Qismullah Yusuf

Abstract


Digital culture has been permeated into the minds and souls of all of us: the teachers, the parents, the community and also our students. Some of us still in our second industrial revolution era, the printed culture, and others are in the third industrial era still framed by the electronic gadgets, and now our students are in the digital culture where each digit of the culture is regulating our life.  Many of our teachers, should they be aware or not of this change, are trapped in their own era while students are moving towards the digital life where each part of our life is regulated by digits. These digits inform us on our current blood pressure, the beats of our heart, what to eat, what to drink, what to wear, when to rest and how many hours of sleep are needed to maintain good health. Thus, teachers then should move faster since the digital culture keeps changing with higher paces of speed. They should be provided with the early childhood education, pedagogy, andragogy, gerontology, peeragogy, digitagogy, cybergogy and heutagogy. All of these ‘gogies’ will make the life of teachers easier if they are competence in using and understanding the digital system that regulate our educational life in this 21st century. The life of a person with digital culture is entering into our classroom, house, environment and community.  The choice for us is to adapt or to adopt, and there are no ways to escape.

Keywords: Digital Culture, Peeragogy, Digitagogy, Cybergogy, Heutagogy, Digitalist.
