Goals for technology in education

This looks like a really interesting conference in Aarhus University from where this tweet on goals for technology in education caught my eye.


While there’s much to agree with here, there seems to me to be an underlying assumption that we know what good use of technology in education is. We just have to develop the competences to deliver *it*. But surely using technology in education is contingent and situated and what seems to be missing is looking to the institutional capabilities to experiment and respond to positive patterns that emerge within each specific socio-cultural and technological context. Looking to individual competence is not enough and we need to consider organisational capabilities to work with and in these complex and emergent contexts.
