It’s the second in our three part miniseries, WHERE’S MY HOVERBOARD?! Where we take some of our future prediction principles from part 1 and then bash them up against some of the big things that were supposed to transform education…but didn’t, and then look ahead to things that might actually have a fighting chance.

And because we’re PGZ, we’ll be doing it with a bit of Minority Report slapped over the top, because why the heck not.

We’ll be talking about:

  • Adaptive learning
  • Second Life
  • iTunes U
  • Podcasts
  • ITAs (Intelligent teaching assistants)
  • Next generation digital learning environments

Mark references a great article by Audrey Watters as well that we’d encourage you to check out: The 100 Worst Ed-Tech Debacles of the Decade by Audrey Watters

This week Mike is joined by Liz Ellis as we look at Critical Digital Pedagogy through the lens of Starfleet, the Prime Directive, and the best (insert hate mail here) series of Star Trek.

Is Critical pedagogy a massive subject in itself? Would it have been more sensible to do a separate episode on that first and then the ‘digital’ bit as a followup? Did we forget to actually be critical of critical digital pedagogy? Yes, yes and yes.

Apols if the audio is a bit weird for this one. Editing software changed halfway through the edit on this, and still getting the hang of the new one!

If you enjoy it, or want to tell us how wrong we are about everything, you can get in touch @pedagodzilla on the twitters. Or send a subspace communication using space magic.
