Welcome to the Silicon Valley Digital Learning Meetup! It is associated with Education's Digital Future (edf.stanford.edu) -- a thought project and critical forum convened by the Stanford University Graduate School of Education.
Education’s digital future has not yet been determined. We are building it now. That task raises very large questions. How do people learn best digitally? What doeseducational equity mean in a digital world? Who will profit in a greatly expandedmarket for digital educational products, and who will make the rules for thismarketplace? How will quality standards for digital learning be determined andenforced?
We do not pretend to have all the answers, but we are trying to ask the right questions. We know that many of the most important questions are not just technical. They implicate the politics, ethics, and very meaning of education at a new moment in the history of modernity.
We will send out invitations for particular events throughout the coming year -- but we also encourage you to visit us routinely at edf.stanford.edu for ongoing opportunities to join our work at Stanford.
