Kids need to learn WITH technology, not learn technology. Learning a gadget and gizmo does virtually nothing for them in the work force anyhow. Using technology tools to transform how a lesson is ...See More

Joe Frost erhaps I've missed some of the communication regarding this topic, but it seems we might begin with their site: [link removed].

I disagree with the philosophy espoused by the comments "Kids need to learn WITH technology, not learn technology." It doesn't seem logical for students to learn WITH something they haven't been taught how to use....See More
