What is the Future of Educational Technology?
Over the past 4 years, the Educational Technology Debate had great conversations every month on the major issues in ICT4Edu. From the challenges of 1:1 computing, to the promise of Open Educational Resources, and the reality of MOOCs, we’ve been at the forefront of the major trends facing educators and technologists.
We are now re-starting our discussions with a fresh look at the opportunities and challenges in ICT4D and, we’d like to hear from you.
What are the most important trends and issues facing ICT4Edu today?
Please click here and give us your thoughts and ideas on where we are all headed and who is leading us there. To give you some points to ponder, here are questions we’re wondering:
- Now that the One Laptop Per Child program is fading, is the 1:1 movement in decline?
- With a mobile phone in every educator hand, do schools even need to purchase hardware?
- Where is the digital education revolution promised by MOOCs?
- Why can’t we change pedagogy as fast as we change technology?
- What about focusing on supportive technologies, instead of instructional tech?
- Who are the emergent leaders that are pioneering answers to these questions?
Be sure to share other ICT trends or topics that captivate you. Tell us the education questions you ask, and the answers you yearn to hear. What are the challenges faced by schools and educators in the developing world, and the thought leaders you think may have answers?
Your input will directly improve the Educational Technology Debate, which is our cumulative effort, by driving the topics and educations we’ll engage with during 2014 and beyond.
Your input is not only welcomed – its required!
