This is a dress rehearsal of my opening ‘mini-plenary’ for the hugely successful ELT Innovate conference, held this weekend in Barcelona – on the subject, unsurprisingly – of innovation.
These are the books and articles I refer to:
Postman, N., & Weingartner, C. (1969) Teaching as a subversive activity. Penguin Education.
Selwyn, N. (2011) Education and Technology: Key Issues and Debates, London: Continuum.
Selwyn, N. (2013) Distrusting Educational Technology: Critical Questions for Changing Times. London: Routledge.
Selwyn, N. (2015) ‘Minding our language: Why education and technology is full of bullshit … and what might be done about it’, paper given to the ‘Digital Innovation, creativity and knowledge in education’ conference, Qatar, January 2015.
