Can we learn, teach and impart values over computers and networks, or is technology a threat to education?
„Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.“ Since the development of print technology, or perhaps even much earlier, the devices and processes used to store, convey and display knowledge played an enormous role in shaping the education landscape. Where are we now with screens and earphones, databases and even machines that learn on their own?
This talk will relate experiences from publishing and MOOCs, research results from both formal and extra-curricular settings, and will cover the field from primary to higher education.
