What will happen in your session?

There is a danger that edtech is becoming lost in the ‘Silicon Valley Narrative’, controlled by the powerful few, it’s history and research rewritten to fit other agendas. In this workshop we focus on how we can build a less dystopian future of education, exploring how we can put people, and more specifically educators, at the heart of learning, teaching and assessment with technology. As part of this we will introduce the work of the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), its strategy and how its members have a space to contribute to the development of edtech. An important aspect of this is recognizing our members contributions. We will share work on our expanding accreditation scheme for participate discussion and contribution.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

The main part of the workshop will introduce CMALT, ALT’s accreditation scheme, which has been designed to meet these challenges. By recognising skills and experience related to technology in general, but not specific software or tools, the scheme has established itself as a robust accreditation framework for professionals whose role involves edtech. Now we are seeking to expand the framework. Workshop participants will be able to examine the pilot of this new project and participate in the open, collaborative work to expand the framework. We want to practically explore how we empower professionals who work in education to make use of the internet and technology more broadly to help meet some of the biggest challenges in education.

Hi @vigneshwerd

Please confirm that you will be able to attend Mozfest 17

Yes - there will be two of us attending. Perhaps a silly question but couldn't find the answer in the MozFest Facilitators’ Guide, do we need to purchase a weekend ticket?

Provide us a brief outline of your session topics and time estimates
Outline:

  • 10 min - setting out the context and an introduction to our work
  • 10 min - showcase the accreditation framework and how it is currently being developed
  • 30 min - in collaboration provide input to and feedback on the development of the scheme
  • 10 min - collate outputs and share how the work will continue beyond the workshop

Does your session require any additional materials or electronic equipment other than a projector and general office stationery?

No - none required

Please let us know if you want to make any modification to your session proposal

No - no changes required
