The Stories We’ve Been Told (in 2017) about Education Technology

Audrey Watters has put out a heads up on this year’s edition of ‘stories we’ve been told'. It's one thing to gather all these stories, but contextualising them is something entirely different. If this in in your wheelhouse, prime your feed for some long reads. We have been feed a lot this year.

This series is meant to serve in-depth exploration of the events of the past year and an analysis of how these events shape the way in which we imagine and prepare for the future of teaching and learning. We must think more critically about education technology – its technologies and its stories – and I believe that comes in part from scrutinizing its history. The world is not changing more rapidly than ever before – don’t let that story convince you to throw the past into a memory hole.

It starts tomorrow. I will be reading it.
