So I’ve been dipping in and out of the free e-book and blog since last week’s set reading. What I am struck by is how neutral William’s tone is. Not that I think he should be more polemical but just the way that he identifies trends within education but then doesn’t give any normative views. I’d have to read a few more papers to be able to get an impression of whether he only writes occasionally about what it’s like to be on the receiving end of Digital Education. I get the impression that by focusing on algorithmists you end up having to take a more top-down approach. Which is totally legit, elites are worth studying.
