The Economist has a nice write-up on education technology showing promising signs that this field is finally ready. One of the conclusions: the way we think about schools — and teaching — will have to change too. In this sense, technology’s impact on education is no different from any other field. Throwing tools at a problem isn’t nearly as effective as using tools to rethink our approach to a problem.

  1. We need to virtualize education, and then guve every human a virtual agent.

  2. Pan Darius Kairos Rubbish. We need to teach children to think for themselves and to use abstract though to analyse the world in which we live. Technology is a tool to accomplish these goals. Technology is not a be all and end all of education. What will the children do when without a proper education when the internet fails?

  3. The internet cannot fail.

  4. Pan Darius Kairos Rubbish. Power outages cause the internet to fail. Internet can be brought down by virus attacks. Educate yourself.

  5. Gideon Rosenblatt _Throwing tools at a problem isn’t nearly as effective as using tools to rethink our approach to a problem. _ Yep. Reorient thinking.

  6. Zara Altair, I took this picture in Boston, thinking of you and how you would be so surprised to see a sign like this. I told my son, who was sporting a slightly sardonic look on his face. Because he, unlike me, knew that this was a popular chain.

    Oh, well, just so you know – I was thinking of you. πŸ™‚

  7. Gideon Rosenblatt Haha! Thanks for the thought. There was one in Ravenna when I was there to do research. I walked by every day. πŸ™‚

  8. We could have created a National Recommended Reading List decades before this technology was available. Now the issue is how to curate educational software.
