Place of EdTech in Wider Conversation about Future of Higher Education

Another thought-provoking post by Dr. Joshua Kim. My takeaways are:

1. Technology is only a tool. It should never be a goal or a destination,
2. Technologists (or instructional designers) bring some important skills to the conversation because we can create services or programs.
3. The status quo in in higher education is not sustainable and technology and technologists must play a role in driving innovation.
One minor quibble with this excellent post – I have a master’s degree in instructional technology and about 45 hours of computer classes, but I don’t consider myself a technologist, but a person who uses technologies to create learning objects useful to educators.
