Speaker: Brian Lamb
Foreword from Brian:
It has been an angst-filled few years for educational technology as a field. The entrenchment of the enterprise virtual learning environment as institutional hegemon. The pounding waves of hype and profit driven innovations keeping educators off-balance, always responding to the latest breathless claims, and fears of being “left behind”. Inside and outside the academy, we are presented with a series of unaccountable black boxes that define our media consumption, our interactions, our
identities, our finances. How did we get to this point? To what extent are we culpable? And where will we find the principles and the allies to guide and propel us ahead? Can we recapture the spirit of fun, adventure and sense of limitless possibility that once energized ed tech?
Can places of learning be a force of agency rather than algorithms?
