Technology in the classroom is no substitute for great teaching

Great perspective Kenneth. I’ve been thinking a lot about how to strike this balance of human and technical in how we build products, run companies, and design our classrooms. One perspective is the blending of “things” and “devices,” mediums which are commanding and others that are disposable. My new book “The Fuzzy and the Techie,” (http://bit.ly/FuzzyTechie) looks at this balancing act across a number of mediums including education. I think the schools that leverage the power of technology’s access to information can also put it to work in a lightly-directed, creative way where the teacher becomes the coach, and students solve “messy” problems. After all, what’s the point of education except to expand passion and curiosity?
