Much of the discourse on emerging technologies centers on tidy, efficient, and measurable uses of those technologies for student learning or it dwells on their invasive, disruptive, or deterministic potential. This talk will take a different approach to emerging technologies for learning—viewing them as providing opportunities for beautiful complexity, curiosity and play, and inclusion. Amy Collier will explore the notion of not-yetness as a fruitful conceptual space for emerging technologies and discuss how we might embrace not-yetness in our work. Moving away from utopian and dystopian narratives that accompany technology, we will instead examine not-yetness as a space for exploring what is possible and what is exciting about emerging technologies for learning.

This is one of the keynote sessions for Digital Pedagogy Lab Cairo. To sign up,
