This piece on edtech during Covid was written for a wide audience. Edtech can do good, but also anticipates big changes for education long term. Should engage teachers, parents, students, not just developers and investors etc, in this discussionhttps://online.ucpress.edu/currenthistory/article/120/822/15/114546/Education-Technology-Seizes-a-Pandemic-Opening

Lots to think about in the linked article: Education Technology Seizes a Pandemic Opening | Current History | University of California Press

An algorithmic worldview now permeates education systems and is encoded into the digital platforms that proliferated during school and college closures in the pandemic. COVID-19 has been treated as an experimental opportunity to scale up the use of algorithmic technologies, generate fresh forms of capital investment, and grow market share—while presenting a model vision for the future of the education sector itself.
