Designing and using new media effectively in classrooms in ways that sustain, engage and transform is challenging for everyone working in the field of educational media today. Using experiences and contexts set in India, this paper posits a serious need to move the designing and creating of these tools from being just “stuff” that form part of what is being described today as the “Plentitude”. Moving from just making and using digital “stuff” in classrooms to working at creating vibrant and creative ways that foster deep learning is the challenge of our times. This challenge is one that needs educators, policy makers and designers to make a conscious shift from the philosophy of the plentitude to a philosophy of slowness and connectedness.
