Critical Educational Technology

… and the next TICPE-2017 e-Book chapter introduced in a video commentary is…

… ‘Performance information and data-driven academic anxiety’, by Richard Hall, Professor of Education and Technology at De Montfort University, England.

Without further ado, here is the author’s presentation (with subtitles in Portuguese):

Although Richard’s discussion addresses Higher Education in the ‘global North’, in particular, in the UK, readers should be able to notice – reading also Raquel Goulart Barreto‘s ‘Objects as subject: the radical displacement’, that there are several points of contact between Richard’s concerns and questions confronting us in Brazil (and, assumedly, in many other places). In particular: questions concerning teaching associated with market logics and technocractic views of Education and Technology) represented in the types of instructionist Educational Technology that predominate in the “market”). There is a great deal to think about here, a lot of work to be done.

The author keeps the blog Richard Hall’s Space, recommended to anyone interested in questions related to the presence of technology in Higher Education, specifically.

Audrey Watters talks about her chapters in “Education and Technology: critical approaches”

Launching our YouTube channel, in the next few weeks we’ll be publishing various posts on our latest e-Book, Education and Technology: critical approachesEach post will focus on a book chapter, which will be presented by the author(s) in videos exclusively produced for us as teasers (or tasters) for the volume.

We start today with Audrey Watters, author of ‘The History of the Future of Ed-Tech’ and ‘Un-fathomable: the hidden history of Ed-Tech’ , included in Part III of the e-Book, Historicity. In the video, Audrey talks about her contribution, presenting ideas that underpin her work as an independent scholar and writer, and showing that her nickname – Cassandra of Ed-Tech – is quite appropriate.
