Technology for the sake of technology


In this article, Jamie argues that schools made serious mistakes when bringing networked computers and laptops into schools, underfunding professional development and assuming that the mere possession of equipment would lead to better thinking, reading and school performance. Two decades later, national scores in the USA on the NAEP tests recently declined and we have seen little return on investment.

Composing Ideas - Chapter 2 of Laptop Thinking and Writing

In this chapter, Jamie outlines an approach to using laptops and tablets for idea processing and generation, a focus that most schools have not explored — one that promises to enhance thinking and problem-solving.
