There is a danger that edtech is becoming lost in the ‘Silicon Valley Narrative’, controlled by the powerful few, it’s history and research rewritten to fit other agendas. In this workshop we focus on how we can build a less dystopian future of education, exploring how we can put people, and more specifically educators, at the heart of learning, teaching and assessment with technology. As part of this we will introduce the work of the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), its strategy and how its members have a space to contribute to the development of edtech. An important aspect of this is recognizing our members contributions. We will share work on our expanding accreditation scheme for participate discussion and contribution.
This is a Learning Forum session.
