Thoughts on: A Devil’s Dictionary of Educational Technology (Bryan Alexander and friends)

Bryan Alexander is pretty great, kind of like the wild haired California wizard of the eLearning world. His work (in collaboration with commenters on his blog) in creating the Devil’s Dictionary of Educational Technology just makes him even cooler.

A couple of my favourites:

Big data. n. pl. 1.When ordinary surveillance just isn’t enough.

World Wide Web, n. A strange new technology, the reality of which can be fended off or ignored through the LMS, proprietary databases, non-linking mobile apps, and judicious use of login requirements.
