Swimming against the educational tech tide
from By: Sheilamary Koch (commentary)
"Make learning awesome!" and "Fully capture the attention of all your students!" urge marketing copy for new educational technology offerings. Such products are becoming commonplace in schools around the country — with no end in sight. The school computer and software market is projected to reach $21 billion in sales by the year 2020, reports The New York Times. However, children attending a handful of private schools intentionally bucking this trend will have none of these promised "powerful pedagogical experiences" with technology.
