Please note that events, dates, titles, and locations may change and some events may be cancelled. Thus, CHECK the specific conference website not only for basic information, but to assure yourself that the conference is legitimate.

Kindly retain my contact information (Clayton R. Wright, crwr77 at gmail.com) when you re-distribute the list or publish this list on the web as that is how I receive updates. Prior to attending a conference, consider reading “How to Get the Most Out of a Conference” by Stephen Downes.

Are We Asking The Wrong Question When We Focus on Educational Technology?

Stephen Wealthall

Posted on May 20th, 2014

Education is the process whereby information is organised into knowledge and, with appropriate processing and experience may result in wisdom and therefore a happier, productive and less risky life. Both factual and emotional education basically use the same process and both require that, as well as the provision of information, the recipient has opportunity to […]

The One Laptop Per Child Model Never Was Valid

Alexandra Draxler

Posted on May 13th, 2014

Is the OLPC model still valid? It never was valid, at least not for the target group it was aimed at, and that hasn’t changed. There are so many things wrong with the OLPC model that it is hard to know where to begin, but let me try to summarize. Let’s look at objectives, means, […]

We Need More One Laptop Per Child Hardware and Software Movements

Sandra Thaxter

Posted on May 6th, 2014

Wayan Vota’s article, “Is the One Laptop Per Child Model Still Relevant in 2014?” seems to miss the point. One Laptop Per Child initiated an intervention into countries where there are more children than existing national governments’ education efforts could possibly be effective. In the developing world most teachers are both underpaid, and under prepared […]

Is the One Laptop Per Child Model Still Relevant in 2014?

Wayan Vota

Posted on May 1st, 2014

A decade ago, Nicholas Negroponte burst into the imagination of educators and technologies worldwide with a brilliant vision of every child in the developing world using a laptop to learn learning. At the time, this was a revolutionary idea, and it brought forth a seemingly endless stream of commentary, hype, and announcements of countries planning […]

How Can Educational ICT be Relevant to the Poorest of the Poor?

Gaurav Tiwari

Posted on April 30th, 2014

Consider this: can children in the remotest villages, who can’t even afford proper stationery for school, have access to a top of the line tablet or a laptop for a gamified version of the class exercise? No, but they certainly should. In what is now nothing short of a digital world—considering the pervasive impact of […]

5 Key Barriers to Educational Technology Adoption in the Developing World

Clayton R. Wright

Posted on April 16th, 2014

Educational technology will continue to be implemented incrementally in many parts of the developing world. More rapid uptake and success are unlikely to occur unless five items are addressed – power, Internet connectivity and bandwidth, quality teacher training, respect and better pay for teachers, and the sustainability of implementations. 1. Electrical Power It is a […]

Steve Vosloo

Posted on April 1st, 2014

At the UNESCO Mobile Learning Week 2014 I sat on a panel titled Emerging Trends and New Technology – considered in the context of mobile learning. Below are the notes of the key points that I made.

3 EduTech Trends for Global Success in 2014

Wendy Kopp

Posted on March 27th, 2014

Today, our workforce and economy are global, and our approach to education must be too. At first, it seems daunting. Suddenly, we’re responsible for preparing our students not just to work with their peers down the hall but with students around the world who will be their future colleagues, clients and employers. For Wendy Kopp’s 3 […]

We Need Educational Regime Change in 2014

Charles Leadbeater

Posted on March 25th, 2014

We need regime change and not in some far away land, in which a wayward dictator threatens our oil supply. We need regime change in education. Regimes are not just groups of people – despotic politicians, kleptomaniac ruling families, corrupt military junta – who hold onto power in defiance of the public will. Regimes are […]
