Technology in the Classroom

I am rapidly becoming a tweenteacher reader based on excellent blogs like this one on technology in the classroom (the graphic is worth the look). It still seems pathetic that education is the one area that has not benefited from technology. In any other industry, when there is shortage of a critical resource (ie great teachers) technology creates efficiencies that allow us to fully leverage that resource.

It is sad that we do not use technology to its fullest. Computers can provide the absolute best differentiated instruction, help with language acquisition skills, provide tutoring, and fully leverage great science teachers to thousands of students.

Yet we sit in our antiquated system. Insanity is truly doing the same thing and hoping for a different result. We need to do something different.
