Comment on Key trends in Technology Enhanced Learning by Gráinne

Hi Yes very good points and of course AI is particularly interesting given the comments by people like Stephen Hawking.... I will think some more about AI and hopefully write some more about it in due course.

Thank you very much for this great review of the TEL phenomena (I don't know if we can speak of trends since after - 20 years of elearning (from old WBT lessons to addictive bite sized video), - 10 years of blended learning, - 5 years of Moocs - 1 year of AI making automated recruitment interview more relevant than human driven one, it looks difficult to guess what will really shape the future of learning) One aspect of TEL that you did not mention is the impact of AI on what will be worth learning. For example - real time translation will impact the need for learning foreign languages. Not only AI will change the way but also the need for learning most of the hard and soft skills: An intelligent App will be able to guide you discretely how to interact with your environment (people, robots, decision making, ...) For Education and Corporate learning organizations the impact of Technology on what is worth learning will soon become bigger compared to how to learn probably bigger

Interesting resonance in Catherine's remarks with the work i contribute to on an IDRC programme. This looks critically, through projects in the global South, at 'open development', the notion of openness in the context of 'international development', and whether it is unconditionally benign or merely privileging the privileged. The projects are into their first year.

Nice to read your post Grainne, Have you read the blog about slow learning? I haven't read it in detailed, but some time ago I skimmed through it and at least the following post matches with your current reflection: I am subscribe to the “slow” movement in several aspects of my life, including learning. The main reason is I need to be in harmony with the fact that I am a mortal, meaning every single human being has its own pace. However, in my opinion the problem of “speed” goes beyond education, but in a society pressed by an economical system in which ALL must be done by yesterday. The system, imho, is very complex. Interesting times we are living. Take care and keep enjoying the Sunday, - Carolina

I'm more of thinking of evolution of education rather than revolution. Looking at how education is in the pre-digital era to what's currently being applied.

Thank you very much for this reflection. I have also been working on defending the necessity of slowing down the "fast learning effect" we are suffering nowadays. We are not giving time to the learners to embrace all the learning changes and new technologies. Racing to the future can lead us to crash. Maybe would be better to bring about an evolution instead of a revolution.
