This chapter considers the interweaving of drama, education and technology. We argue that rather than a set of settled principles and practices, the evolutionary nature of technology has ‘gifted’ education in general and drama education in particular a series of evolving themes relating to identity and learning. Reflecting on forms that have evolved in the almost two decades since John Carroll’s seminal critical studies article ‘Digital Drama: A Snapshot of Evolving Forms’, we discuss examples of what has been adopted and what remains contested or rejected. The chapter concludes with a call to reconsider the increasingly tenuous and unhelpful partitions between drama and technology.
