AbstractConcordia University, Graduate Programme in Educational Technology, 40th Anniversary Conference, Opening keynote address (by video), 28 June 2009, What Educational Technology Means to Me, Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // I came to the Ed. Tech. programme already holding respectable degrees from the universities of Oxford and Paris; but I can honestly say that the Ed. Tech. programme has changed my life more than any other course of study. Maybe that also qualifies me for this spot on the programme – and it is a good lead-in to what I am going to say. If you are looking for a savant disquisition on the theory of educational technology then I suggest you go and get a coffee. This is going to be an autobiographical and anecdotal account of what educational technology means to me. // Indeed, since I like to give a title to every speech, today’s title just that: What Educational Technology Means to Me.
