The post asks the question- Can children learn from technology without the support of teachers and classmates?  Education views always seem to swing from one side to the complete opposite and this post is definitely demonstrating such!  Technology and education have the capacity to sway heavily in one direction.  It will be very interesting to see what comes of the trial!

  1. When any new technology enters the world, amazing results are predicted. Historically, the actual returns have not lived up to the hype. Some say this one is different. We will see. It will take time to determine just how technology can help. Personally, I have doubts about teaching reading through technology. The alphabet, perhaps, but that is a far cry from reading.
