In this symposium, presenters will examine some of the emerging complexities of digital learning environments that connect virtuality with education. Virtual education that takes place in digital learning environments are mediated social and cultural spaces that combine the banalities of simulated representation with an allure of seamless invisibility and power. Panelists will report on research about several different kinds of virtual spaces designed for various forms of face-to-face, hybrid, and online education and provide a brief analysis based on the following question: How can virtual education and digital learning environments be used as meaningful cultural spaces? In conclusion audience members will be invited to participate in a discussion about these issues.
