Here come the forecasts

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.
