Some quotes:

  • The most impressive technology-rich classrooms don’t look like classrooms. Instead, they look like creative businesses on deadline—like advertising agencies pulling together a big campaign, architectural firms drawing up blueprints, or software companies developing new programs
  • Will we use new tools to rethink the purposes and structure of education, or will we simply use technology to boost efficiency in our factories?
  • Many of the largest providers of online learning opportunities describe efficiencies related to cost per student rather than learning gains per student
  • The most interesting debate in education technology today is not about tablets vs. laptops or school-supplied tablets vs. bring-your-own-device scenarios. The choice is really between two metaphors and two visions of education—the factory vs. the creative agency
