    The organisers of eLearning Korea 2017 have invited me to give a talk on the future of education and educational technology. The conference has a curious byline “a happy encounter with new technology”, and it's to this byline I target the presentation.
    I aim to acknowledge the unhappiness created by technology and propose humanism to ward off technocratic tyranny and to discover what technological happiness might be.
    I hope my proposition is clear - that for there to be a happy encounter with technology, we need to re-orientate ourselves to humanist perspectives. Those perspectives can be found in history, philosophy, ethics, anthropology, theory, art, storytelling, questioning, criticism and debate. Sensitivity to humanism needs to be nurtured, the ember that might make a flame seems at risk of being extinguished.
    It is with humility and hope that I offer this idea to the eLearning Korea 2017 Conference.
