The Office Hour, Chapter 26: “The Big Machines That Are Coming To Take Our Jobs”

In this episode, we talk to Brittain Fellow, TECHStyle co-editor, and frequent Office Hour guest Anna Ioanes in order to dispel some myths about online and hybrid teaching. Are EdTech companies like Khan Academy and Minerva Schools gunning for our jobs? And what about MOOCs like the University of Pennsylvania’s ModPo? We discuss current scholarship and debates on the subject, and inquire as to whether snow days are still possible in the digital classroom.

The podcast can be played using the embedded player above or downloaded as an mp3 file.

The Office Hour‘s previous interviews with Dr. Ioanes (Chapter 2: “The Hermeneutics of Suspicion” and Chapter 9: “One Week Out”) can be streamed or downloaded here and here.
