Details

Innovation, business and governance: the case of mEducation with speaker Diego Santori (Institute of Education) and research from Stephen Ball (Institute of Education).

Focusing on the emergent field ofmEducation, this seminar aims to illustrate one specific instantiation of network governance. To do this, we trace the ways in which key players in the mEducation industry are connected through reports, websites, and events, constituting a discursive community. Within the wider context of Ed-Tech, the paper pays particular attention to the mEducation Alliance, as a space of knowledge sharing, validation and production, highlighting the role of some key players in shaping and to some extent delineating the principles that underpin those practices.
