Education Technology Society: Digital Technologies and the Commercialism of Education

In this podcast episode of Education Technology Society, Professor Neil Selwyn speaks with Faith Boninger about how digital technologies are increasingly implicated in the commercialism of education. They discuss the long-running NEPC reports on virtual high schools (find them here), NEPC’s research on personalized learning systems, and why tech companies have an insatiable urge to "fix" education. 

The podcast was initially released on April 2, 2024.
