Trump says the Secretary of Education is “highly respected.” Certainly this week’s news really really underscores how much:

'Education Technology's Completely Over'

This was the first-half of a joint presentation at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab. The better half was delivered by Jim Groom. Our topic, broadly speaking: "a domain of one's own"

Why 'A Domain of One's Own' Matters (For the Future of Knowledge)

These remarks were given at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab

I am best known, no doubt, for my criticism of education technology. And perhaps for that reason, people perk up when I point to things that I think are interesting or innovative (and to be clear, interesting or innovative because of their progressive not regressive potential).

The Top Ed-Tech Trends (Aren't 'Tech')

Every year since 2010, I’ve undertaken a fairly massive project in which I’ve reviewed the previous twelve months’ education and technology news in order to write ten articles covering “the top ed-tech trends.” This is how I spend my November and December – researching and writing a series that usually tops out at about 75,000 words – which I didn’t realize until print copies were made for my visit here is about 240 pages.

This talk was presented at The University of Edinburgh's Moray House School of Education

Let me begin with a story. In December 2012 – we all remember 2012 right? “The Year of the MOOC” – I was summoned to Palo Alto, California for a small gathering to discuss the future of teaching, learning, and technology. I use the verb “summoned” deliberately.
