“What Follows for Students & Society in the 2020s? 3 Speculative Futures for Education & Technology” (Recorded Session)

This is the 7th and last session of the TiM seminar which took place via Microsoft Teams.

This session begins with a conversation between Felicitas Macgilchrist and Rianne van Lambalgen about three possible futures for education and technology, especially in light of the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Their conversation will draw on a “social science fiction”, written by Felicitas with Heidrun Allert and Anne Bruch, and set in the year 2040.

What impact did the pandemic of 2019/20 have on educational technology? The conversation also reflects on the future research and the political, educational, and technological decisions which would make each of these three fictional future histories more or less likely.

The session was organized with the support of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Utrecht University.
