Reimagining Learning Technologies & Edtech Development

September 17, 2020 2:00 pm

Virtual

In education, many claims have been made about the ways technology will disrupt conventional approaches to teaching and learning, increase efficiencies, and empower learners at scale. Yet, these highly publicized promises have often failed to meet the needs of all learners and do little to address the growing inequities in education.

Join us Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 2:00-3:00pm ET as we explore these concerns with Dr. Justin Reich, the Mitsui Career Development Professor of Comparative Media Studies and Director of the Teaching Systems Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and author of the book Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education.

We will discuss the crucial role technology plays in the future of education, the reform efforts needed to support meaningful institutional changes, and take questions from our live audience. Reserve your seat today!
