Publisher Description

As we see our society becoming more and more technologically advanced, “Traditions, Education, Technology” responds to Watters’ (2015) call to love and care for our technological creations (lest they become monsters). An interdisciplinary team of students from Simon Fraser University researched and designed this interactive, multi-touch eBook with the goal of illuminating the origins, implications, and trajectory of technological innovation across diverse educational contexts. Each chapter offers a view of the traditions associated with a specific technology for learning, including: intelligent tutoring systems, artificial intelligence, cognitive systems, virtual reality, MOOCs, digital portfolios, online assessment tools, eLearning, distance education, video games, and social media. Evocative and provocative, this text broadens the discussion around the complex issues and contradictory influences of technology in our classrooms, schools, communities, and worlds. May you be fascinated, challenged to ask the hard questions, and inspired to see new possibilities for teaching and learning, as technological innovation continues to confront the norms and values of contemporary education systems.
