Ed-Tech. Can we get it right?
Great new video on Socratic Labs in NYC. See link below. This “accelerator” for education technology seems to be on the right side of thinking. Also watch Chicago. New Schools Chicago is going deep into the ed-tech world to help that city and our profession get more good work done through improved and expanded uses of technology in classrooms and schools.
Can we get this right? There are some worrisome examples of commercialism run amuck. And, there are far too many examples of educators trying to use technology without taking advantage new opportunities to change the less effective ways we deliver the work for kids.
This video, and the work of New Schools Chicago give me hope. See what you think. Link is:
