This paper analyses the distinctive features of what are often today called the 'new media'—a range of media created and distributed using digital technologies. The relationships of these new media to education vary from attempts at transliteration of the classroom and heritage learning relationships into the digital media (in the form of 'learning management systems', for instance), to the project of teaching about and using these media in the classroom. Endeavours of these kinds implicitly treat the new media as neutral and transparent. The paper challenges this assumption. It asks what is communicatively and representationally new about the new media, and on this basis, how the new media might be the foundation for a 'new learning'.
