Picking the good fight

Posted on: December 9, 2020

I am following a few battles that higher education faculty are waging with “edtech” vendors and administrators.

What is the overall war about? It is against surveillance technology pretending to be educational technology.

One specific battle is the defence of Ian Linkletter against Proctario. Another is the CUNY fight against Turnitin.

CUNY vs Turnitin.

Far more articulate and well-read individuals have information on these battles. The links above lead to resources that all educators and academics should care about.

The frontlines have moved right outside your office or study. Which side do you stand on? Some of us are already in occupied territories, but we fight the good fight nonetheless.
