Cold Climate

I’ve just been reading Seb Schmoller’s posting about the workshop he ran at the 2nd February LSIS event Embracing Technology for Success Conference 2011. Reading Seb’s posting prompted me to respond:

An interesting list of things to emerge – it would be very interesting to know what (sector and job) profile of group participants produced it. I was recently struck by Neil Selwyn’s 2008 challenge to the research community to focus on the “state-of-the-actual” rather than “state-of-the-art” (Technology, Pedagogy and Education Vol. 17, No. 2, July 2008, 83–87). Distrust of ‘magic bullet’ messages about ILT seems to be flourishing in the cold climate.

I found both Seb’s posting and the LSIS conference itself (with its presentations and prominent presenters as a reflection of the current e-politics of the sector) most interesting as we approach the post-Becta era.
