The Stories We Were Told about Education Technology

Audrey Watters, Hack Education, Dec 18, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Audrey Watters is not writing a ten-part review of education this year offering instead this quick summary that says, essentially, that innovation in the field has slowed to a crawl and that governments and educators are making the same mistakes over and over again. "If I look back at what I’ve written in previous years, I feel like I’ve already covered everything I could say about 2018," she writes. "I’ll just note here that the most important 'innovator' in this area this year (other than Gritty) was surely the e-cigarette maker Juul, which offered a mindfulness curriculum to schools – offered them the curriculum and $20,000, that is – to talk about vaping." Yeah, that's 2018 in a nutshell.
