In the Q&A, sava saheli singh asked how we balance the “cool factor” of exciting new tech with our critical concerns. I think that’s a great way of identifying the challenge that we face, both in ed tech and technology spheres more broadly. As Martin said, many of us are tech magpies, and we enjoy playing with these new techs. However, we have an ethical duty to think critically and teach others to do the same about these new techs.
Thank you John for sharing your notes associated with Martin Hawksey’s keynote for #Domains19. I liked point of the ‘cool factor’ of technology and Martin’s point about the ethical duty. I reminds me of a post I wrote about being secure, safe and informed.
