Keynote 2: 'Better Questions?"
This keynote presentation brings together perspectives from computing science and cultural theory to consider whether 'Balance, Fidelity and Mobility' are indeed the means by which agendas will be advanced for educational technology. The two presenters, Professor Erica McWilliam and Professor John Gough, will explore the usefulness or otherwise of the conference theme from their different theoretical locations, before moving on to consider what might count as 'better questions' Their presentation will be dialogic in nature, as they track their thinking about the nature and purposes of educational technology against a fluid background of contexts, ideas and applications.
