Hugh McGuire on the Question Concerning EdTech
By Leigh Kinch-Pedrosa |
Our CEO and founder Hugh McGuire thinks a lot about creativity, humans, and technology—how they intersect, how they challenge each other, how they lift each other up. Recently, Hugh published an article in which he applies these themes to education technology. Hugh’s article builds on his old love of the Heidegger essay “The Question Concerning Technology,” comparing this argument against/around technology to the present in which technology has become so inextricable from pedagogy and student life. It outlines Hugh’s personal thoughts on tech now that the pandemic has pushed our reliance to extremes, and how Pressbooks fits into this ed tech-heavy world.
