Relegated edtech

Posted on: March 8, 2021

I was glad to find out about the effort to actively diagnose and support young children with learning impediments.

I was not as glad to see how “digital solutions” to support or enable learning was relegated to the end of the video. It was merely mentioned and not elaborated on. Is edtech not part of the support or enablement of such children?

More broadly speaking, I take issue with agencies that still have a standalone technology module that is part of a larger course. Worse still, some of these modules are afterthoughts and/or relegated to the end of the course.

Such a design sends an insidious message to participants: Edtech is not important or is a good-to-have instead of a must-have.
