It’s tempting to rely on new technology to solve problems in education. I’m not against technology, but we should think hard about its purpose and remember that healthy development for a person is about so much more than learning content. We need to invest resources (our time, energy, physical space, et cetera) into having face-to-face conversation on a frequent and intentional basis. (Even when “productive” isn’t a word to describe this.) We HAVE to learn empathy and robots will never do the job. Thanks, Sandra, for the piece.
