e-fair 2012 - Keynote presentation

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Bob Harrison, Education Advisor & Consultant.

"Evolution needs mutations and Revolution needs pioneers but where will they come from in a sector-led system".

The presentation will question whether, in a “sector-led system” and a funding and accountability regime which militates against innovation, we can avoid what Martin Bean, and Vice Chancellor of the Open University describes as a “crisis of relevance” facing schools, colleges, adult & community learning and work based learning.

  3. 3. Barriers to change-Diana Laurrilard The drivers of the education system 1. – assessment, curriculum, inspection/ quality requirements, funding flows, promotion criteria – have not changed in recognition of what technology offers, so nothing within it can change.
  4. 4. Barriers to change 2. Technological change is very rapid, and because every innovation is useful in education we need more time to make the radical changes they afford.
  5. 5. Barriers to change 3. The education system is run by leaders who are not comfortable with either the detail or the implications of the technology potential, and they need more support.
  6. 6. Barriers to change 4. Education is a political activity so avoids being subject to the innovation that market forces encourage.
  7. 7. Barriers to change 5. Education systems change slowly because they are hierarchical command - control systems, rather than devolved - power adaptive systems. Teachers and lecturers are given neither the power nor the means to improve the nature and quality of the teaching-learning process through technology.
