Our friend Garrett Zimmer (@PBJellyGames), the CEO and President of MineGage, has some pretty strong words in EdSurge in which he acknowledges that edtech landscape is a gimmick laden swamp. From his opinion piece there:
So, let’s be honest with ourselves, that education “swamp”… is actually filled withE gimmicks. If someone working in edtech tries to tell you differently, that’s a big red flag that either 1) they are lying to you, or 2) they are too ignorant and naive.
His piece on how it is that way and what he suggests to do about it, is here.
