Critical perspectives on educational technology

For a recent seminar discussion involving reading and scholarship I came across a interesting blog post by George Veletsianos. In his post George highlighted some readings which critically addressed open education and educational technology.

When discussing educational technology it’s good to have some perspectives which question technology in addition to supporting its use. I have now book marked this resource to read and use in the future. As George mentions in his aside;

“The collection of these papers is intended to assist individuals in making informed perspectives on the design and implementation of technology in education. The goal is *not* to label educational technology as problematic or  worse than the alternative. Rather, the goal is to encourage individuals to make informed and socially just decisions.”

Allowing individuals to make informed decisions using a variety of research literature is really valuable within educational technology research.

Pleased to say that this week I discovered I’d passed my PGCHE. Really pleased that I can now progress to start the PG Dip.

I’ll be continuing to use this space to document thoughts, findings and feelings in relation to the course. Starting tomorrow 🙂
