Raynor, Michael E. – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
Michael E. Raynor limits his commentary to Flavin's discussion of Wikipedia. Flavin argues that Wikipedia is a disruptive innovation, and has disrupted the hard-copy encyclopedia. Flavin sees Wikipedia in optimistic terms, as democratising education and 'reframing the means by which knowledge is produced, distributed and consumed.' He implies that…

Clark, Tom – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
Higher education (HE) in the United Kingdom (UK) has been on a trajectory of marketisation for much of the 21st Century (see Marginson, 2018). These developments reflect international policy trends toward a more pervasive neoliberal ideology that has sought to transform the global HE sector into a capitalist market subject to buyer-seller…

Devitt, Ann – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
Given the experiences of educators and learners through the COVID-19 pandemic, it is certainly timely to explore disruption in higher education. As Flavin rightly states, despite radical changes in technology over the last 20 years, technology has not disrupted higher education in any meaningful way. However, within the last 12 months, COVID-19…

Knox, Jeremy – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
In this response article, the author argues that the notion of 'disruptive innovation' should not be a guiding light for higher education. First and foremost, proponents of this idea would do well to recognise that much broader discourses of revolutionary change have characterised the field of education technology for decades. In short, it is an…

Brown, Carol – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
According to Eccles' expectancy-value model of achievement motivation, students' expectations and values relate to their performance and are influenced by goals and identities. When specific identities are important to an individual the tasks associated with them will have value and the individual will be motivated to act them out. This study…

Anderson, Terry – Psychology of Education Review, 2021
Besides a lack of focus on the context in which the innovation thrives or dies, the author takes issue with some of Dr. Flavin's choice of examples. Flavin argues that Wikipedia has disrupted higher education. The author is a supporter of Wikipedia (both through donation and article edits) and uses it regularly, but does not believe it has had…

Raven, John – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
The need to find ways of ameliorating a number of what seemed to be gross abuses of 'science', logic, and authority in relation to educational policy emerged as a priority whilst revisiting writings on early childhood and elementary education. In the current paper, it is argued that many of these abuses stem from the uncritical acceptance of…

Gorard, Stephen – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
In this response to John Raven's "Diving in Where Angels Fear to Tread: Pre-Requisites to Evidence-Based Interventions," Stephen Gorard questions whether Raven's claims that researchers have created a serious threat to the entire earth, perhaps all of science, the process of education, and the field of psychology due to a lack of logic…

Wigelsworth, Michael – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
In John Raven's "Diving in Where Angels Fear to Tread: Pre-Requisites to Evidence-Based Interventions," he outlines several critical failings in which social scientists bear a responsibility for potentially a great deal of damage toward children, society, and notably, the planet itself. The nature of the damage appears to be one of…

Putwain, David W. – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
John Raven's article concerns the relationship between policy and evidence, what role that relationship plays in shaping the society in which we live, and what role researchers might play in shaping the relationship between policy and evidence. Although published in a "Psychology of Education Review", some of the examples draw beyond the…

Remedios, Richard – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
John Raven has the capacity to see a bigger picture and highlight some of the causes of failures of that bigger picture. In barely 6000 words, he manages to outline several meta and micro-level problems that have led to the position he outlines regarding evidence-based interventions. This achievement should not be overlooked; what he has managed…

MacKay, Tommy – Psychology of Education Review, 2020
In this commentary on John Raven's "Diving in Where Angels Fear to Tread: Pre-Requisites to Evidence-Based Interventions," Tommy MacKay discusses three examples that illustrate Raven's tendency to overstate or at least to over-simplify the issues raised in his paper and to present various views, approaches, or interventions as being…
