Ed Tech Ethics

May 30, 2022

This is a three-part series from Christina Hendricks introducing ed tech ethics. Part One outlines the Association of Learning Technology's (ALT) Framework for Ethical Learning Technology (FELT), and offers some useful commentary. Part Two looks at two sets of rubrics for evaluating ed tech, one from Morris and Stommel, the other from Autumn Caines. Finally, Part Three describes Per Axbom's Elements of Digital Ethics. I find most discussions of ed tech ethics very prescriptive, and in many cases, focused on preventing wrongs. Where I see a lack of commonality (if ever it would be possible) is in the aspirations of ed tech - why are we doing this, and what is our definition of what's right and good in our field, and what is this definition based on?
