So They Can Do Real Work?

And before the Microsoft Surface came to classrooms everywhere, what were students doing? Obviously not learning. I am absolutely convinced that you could toss in the trash every single piece of “technology” that is used in our classrooms and it would have no negative effect on student learning. Indeed, it might have the opposite effect. We tell ourselves whoppers about education, and then stand appalled at the results we get. I agree with Neil Postman that teachers stand to lose the most from these technologies, but they don’t realize it.
