How do we live responsibly, ethically and critically with technology?

As I said yesterday, stopping blogging was not a good idea.

I mentioned the fact to a few people today and the consensus was if you don’t keep a blog up to date, delete it – it does you no favours.

As it happened I was at the EUFOLIO, International ePortfolio Conference today in Dublin Castle .

There is a lot I could say, but in the spirit of getting the blog on track again, I want to mention the Keynote by Val Klenowski, Professor of Education at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia (click on link here to watch her full presentation, scroll to the 27 minute mark).

Klenowski drew on key people in her learning journey, particularly someone whose work I hold in high regard, Keri Facer.

I want to leave you with one point to think about.

Klenowski is particularly concerned with equity and ethics and using ePortfolios to pose critical questions in order to prompt student reflexive action – metacognition and an ability to take action as a basis of feedback.

She takes a question that Facer cites as central – How do we live responsibly, ethically and critically with technology?

I will leave the answer for you to ponder!
