Bookmarked The Stories We Were Told about Education Technology (2018) by Audrey Watters (Hack Education)

This is the ninth year that Iโ€™ve reviewed the stories weโ€™re being told about education technology. Typically, this has been a ten (or more) part series. But I just canโ€™t do it any more. Some people think itโ€™s hilarious that Iโ€™m ed-techโ€™s Cassandra, but itโ€™s not funny at all. Itโ€™s depressing, and itโ€™s painful. And no one listens.

Audrey summaries the stories that we were told about technology in 2018. She touches on the #MeToo, the revolt by US public school teachers, increase of hate speech, the spread of misinformation by technology giants and the rise in school security. Watters also highlights the fact that many of these stories are far from new.
