21 Drowning by Numbers How numbers give EdTech a bad name The drive towards adaptive learning is being fuelled less by individual learners or teachers than it is by commercial interests, large educational institutions and even larger agencies, including national governments.

33 Drowning by Numbers How numbers give EdTech a bad name Hattie declares that the use of computers (sic!) is most effective: with a diversity of teaching strategies after teacher training in appropriate use when there are multiple opportunities for learning when the student is in "control" of learning when peer learning is optimised when feedback is optimised Click here to read Hattie on feedback drowning by numbers 33
