So the clocks have gone back,
the nights are drawing in,
and the Edtechnorati are writing their end of 2018 / start of 2019 edtech forecasts.
(With apologies to Seamus)
The Edtech Forecast
Blackboard, Moodle, Fronter, Pearson:
Westerly, veering southerly, constructivist, downturn.
Canvas, outlying, veering mainstream, not yet connectivist.
Start-ups, vying, occasionally rough, turning moderate, visibility poor.
Analytics everywhere, visibility hidden, mainstream,
Ceding control, data storm, gale force 9.
Academics fog bound, IT outsourced, pedagogies irrelevant.
General synopsis at 2018:
Outlook: highs turning to depression, storm force change, vendor driven.
