Is it Technology or Teaching?

If the insti­tu­tion (whether non-profit or for-profit) is sim­ply drop­ping expen­sive tech­nol­o­gy into the class­room with­out rethink­ing ped­a­gogy — teach­ing meth­ods, rules, mod­els, con­tent, and modes of student-teacher inter­ac­tion — then stu­dents are not get­ting their money’s worth. Par­ents should not ask what devices are avail­able to their stu­dents but how the devices are being used to enhance learn­ing.
