Direct Instruction Is Killing Us

You actually get your edtech card revoked if you haven’t expressed that idea in a forum recently. The direct instruction = assembly line worker thing is has become the edtech equivalent of you’re defending the status quo or you’re saying poverty is destiny or we need to think about what’s good for the kids, not the adults.   I dunno.

Students Demand the Right to Use Technology in Schools

We’ve heard arguments from ed tech experts about how using technology for learning may in fact deepen the divide between wealthy and low-income kids. Students who have access to technology and are encouraged by teachers and parents to leverage it for new ways of learning, the argument goes, will leap even further ahead than low-income students who are forbidden to use it in public schools. 
Those arguments were personified last week in the collective voices of students from Morningside, Crenshaw, Roosevelt, Locke, and Manual Arts high schools, who presented their case at the Digital Media and Learning conference in San Francisco.
