The DMLL is excited to welcome its next visiting fellow!

Audrey Watters is a writer who focuses on education and technology — the relationship between politics, pedagogy, business, culture, and ed-tech. She has worked in the education field for over 15 years: teaching, researching, organising, and project-managing. Although she was two chapters into her dissertation (on a topic completely unrelated to ed-tech), she decided to abandon academia, and she now happily fulfils the one job recommended to her by a junior high aptitude test: freelance writer.

At the end of every year since 2010 she has reviewed the most important and influential trends in education technology. This isn’t just a “listicle” – a quick dash through popular technologies. Rather, it’s an in-depth exploration and analysis of the events of the year: research.hackeducation.com/trends.html

Audrey will be visiting fellow at the lab during the first week of April 2017. If you want to know more about the different activities we will be hosting or would like to meet with her please get in touch with Daniel Villar-Onrubia (ab8455@coventry.ac.uk).

Current Trends in Education and Technology

In this talk Audrey Watters, visiting fellow at DMLL, will discuss the most significant trends in education and technology.

Since 2007 she has been releasing at the end of every year an in-depth review of the most important and influential trends in education technology.

Audrey Watters is the author of The Monsters of Education Technology (2014), The Revenge of the Monsters of Education Technology (2015), The Curse of the Monsters of Education Technology (2016), and collections of her keynotes and public talks. She also published Claim Your Domain in 2015, which argues students should control their digital identities and digital work.

The talk is aimed at anyone – lecturers, staff and students – interested in the implications of emerging technology trends for education.

Technology-Enhanced Student Attainment and Retention?
When: 2-4pm, April 4th
Where: the Teaching room, DMLL

Supporting students to achieve their full potential and to succeed in completing their degrees within the required timeframe is an important responsibility for universities. Learning analytics, personalization or adaptive learning are some of the technology-based approaches that bring the promise of helping universities to address such imperatives. But how much evidence is behind the hype?
