For Between the Chapters episode, Laura is in conversation with Audrey Watters and sava saheli singh to navigate these troubling waters of educational technology. This episode swirls around the ed tech’s dystopian storm from Chapter 25; however, we all agreed there are many dark aspects from previous chapters and years prior to hit the fever pitch of 2018. The issues and challenges of a number teaching and learning technologies have been brought up in previous bonus book club chats. Beyond avoiding the sci-fi plot being drafted by technology companies, we can find agency through refusal and doing more than just being critical of ed tech. We need to return to a sense of “the commons” in higher ed, where care and compassion coexist with our practices -- let’s pack up our values & build that space again, my friends.Questions asked:
  • Where do the responsibilities lie for educational technology?
  • When was the last time you resisted technology? How do you use refusal in ed tech?
  • What should we refuse or resist more, in general?
  • Where did the common go in our shared institutions?
  • How can we build a better community to have reciprocity and responsibility for one another in ed tech/higher ed/life?
  • What if we do decide that ed tech makes things worse?
  • Where do we go if ed tech is actually a dystopian project?
  • What is it that we value that is not wrapped up in ed tech we want to take with us?
  • How do we reclaim some of the agency, hope, and good stuff we thought would come out of ed tech?
  • If there is a commons somewhere, where is it? Can we get an invite?
