Most of the time, talk of more technology in the classroom earns a giant eyeroll from me. This is because many folks don't understand the breadth and the depth of the learning that ought to be happening on the classroom. Much of the technology being used these days only serves to speed up linear learning. Yeah, kids might learn material faster and bang through tests quicker. But that which the children "learn" never becomes their own.
This article I just read provides a model for using tech that I can really get behind. And, done well, I'd have to admit is likely superior to any other classroom model I've seen.
