In Education, Technology Changes Everything and Nothing| The Committed Sardine

In Education, Technology Changes Everything and Nothing| The Committed Sardine:

"A technological revolution is happening in the world of education; it is changing schools for the better. But, it will never change the definition of and need for great teaching. That is what attendees of The Atlantic's second annual Technologies in Education forum learned and discussed Tuesday.

You would think that a room full of "who's who" technology experts, online and gaming companies, and futurists would "talk tech." We had that conversation to be sure. But the intriguing part was that the discussion kept returning to the basics of great classroom teaching. There was widespread agreement among the participants that technology will change everything and nothing. Essentially, what we do with technology has to have fundamental underpinnings in what the best teachers in the world have done for decades."
