I’m occasionally asked why I’m so passionate about technology in schools. It can admittedly cost a lot of money and for what real advantage?
It’s a GREAT question. And it’s one that I’ve given a fair amount of thought to over the years — even more so in the recent past. You can read some of my thinking in some recent blogs that I’ve written on the topic:
- Ed Tech – Like the Weather, It Changes Constantly
- Artificial Intelligence Is Here – Time to Buckle up!
- VR – Is it Really Worth All of the Hype?
For me the question isn’t really ABOUT the technology — it’s about the effect that technology can have on the learning or lives of those it impacts.
