What Is Ed-Tech Algorithm?

The MET journey has provided me with a rich dimension of educational reality; most prominently, it has offered a bag of approaches for creating impactful tools for educational purposes. I termed them as the Ed-Tech algorithm for bridging the gap between the education and technology worlds. This algorithm solves the critical problems of the “one-way bridge“, including :

Models of Ed-Tech Algorithm

ED-tech algorithm is composed of three models representing the themes at the heart of my learning experience. Each model has contingent three elements and a careful selection of artifacts providing possible reinscriptions for our educational-technical situation.

The foundational model allowed me to immerse myself in the insiders’ context. I gained a more profound understanding of the learning theories, educational research methods, and the constructivist philosophy shaping the current learning view and approaches.

The model has been valuable for evaluating, interpreting, and possibly adopting the new gadgets that promise silver bullet solutions. Through the practical interactions with various platforms, I gained insights into refinements to meet the needs of our educational partners.

The model allowed me to think beyond the apparent obstacles via understanding political, historical, cultural, and epistemological factors that hinder or support participation. I traversed into a relational thinking perspective and new visions to improve CS education and tools.

Using The Spiral Model

All elements of the three models are discussed in terms of the spiral model, we commonly use in the development industry:

A brief overview of the experience and the requirements.

The conceptual framework, literature, and thinking behind the production.

Reflections and growth.

Artifacts and Visual summaries.
