qEducation is in crisisa€”at least, so we hear. And at the center of this crisis is technology. New technologies like computer-based classroom instruction, online Ka€“12 schools, MOOCs (massive open online courses), and automated essay scoring (AES) may be our last great hopea€”or the greatest threat we have ever faced.In The Problem with Education Technology, Ben Fink and Robin Brown look behind the hype to explain the problemsa€”and potentiala€”of these technologies. Focusing on the case of automated essay scoring, they explain the technology, how it works, and what it does and doesna€™t do. They explain its origins, its evolution (both in the classroom and in our culture), and the controversy that surrounds it. Most significantly, they expose the real problema€”the complicity of teachers and curriculum-builders in creating an education system so mechanical that machines can in fact often replace humansa€”and how teachers, students, and other citizens can work together to solve it.Offering a new perspective on the change that educators can hope, organize, and lobby for, The Problem with Education Technology challenges teachers and activists on a€œour side, a€ even as it provides new evidence to counter the profit-making, labor-saving logics that drive the current push for technology in the classroom.q1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
