The False Promise of Classroom Technology
Businessweek
The trouble is that the perpetual sense of educational crisis leads to a search for quick fixes—the latest of which is throwing Information Technology at the classroom.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

Confirming the idea that you can throw all the ed tech you can afford at public schools and there won’t be statistically significant improvement UNLESS that technology goes in to a school where quality teaching is already taking place. Technology does NOT replace teaching and giving a student an iPad doesn’t magically turn that student into a budding genius. It’s the combination of the TEACHER and the PARENT and the STUDENT working together that does it.
