Justin Reich's Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education

TeachLab’s first Failure to Disrupt Book Club episode, Justin Reich, Audrey Watters, and special guest Chris Gilliard, Professor of English at Macomb Community College, discuss Reich's recent book, Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education.
I believe strongly in education, but it is a place where people, in some ways, it holds people until they're adults. I'm trying to state that in the least offensive way possible. I mean 'watch' in all the different ways you might think about it. Watch as in oversee. Watch as in take care of. Watch as in monitor.
Chris Gilliard

In the first of ten episodes (all of them can be found here) they, for instance, discuss privacy and surveillance in schools and how some mistake surveillance for care, the incentives of technology companies, and how we're moving forward with EdTech during pandemic times.

I have not yet read the book, but the podcast discussions are very interesting as they, among other things, discuss the potential detrimental implicatons of EdTech on democracy.
