Edupunk and student centred learning through technology

Edupunk and student centred learning through technology | Remote teaching, remote learning | Scoop.it

I’ve often wondered why it is that the internet is such an amazing, creative and inspiring place full of so many fantastically interesting things, and yet so many educational software, applications and e-learning products turn out to be so dull.

A to the point analysis of why we need a punk attitude to educational institutions. They slow down adoption of new technology in education

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 2014 4:39 PM

It is interesting that we think there are no economic interests at play in the e-learning world. There are and they are significant. It does not mean we don't use various digital technologies, but let us make sure we ask questions and challenge their usages when needed.
