Will technology improve learning?

Digital learning is the discussion topic on National Journal.

“Designing and delivering effective technology curriculum requires the same things as designing and delivering any other curriculum.” responds Steve Peha, president of Teaching That Makes Sense.

We have to be clear about what we want kids to know and be able to do; we have to provide kids with the intellectual tools that match the demands of the world; and we must provide the time and opportunities kids need to master these demands.

Teaching how to use PowerPoint or Microsoft Word is trivial: We need to teach students to communicate, he argues.

In Agile Schools: How Technology Saves Education (Just Not the Way We Thought It Would), Peha calls for using Agile software development methodology “for managing learning, people, and change.”
