I quoted Clay Shirky on that quite a bit already, but I think his idea that tech first needs to become boring in order to make a real impact on society is straight on, still.
Great article in which Kirsten Winkler makes a point that a) Skype is increasingly used by people to learn and teach and b) therefore it doesn’t make any sense for online teachers to “hide” on designated teaching platforms but they should face the world wide web instead.
