SAME OL’ INNOVATION: Why do you use technology in the classroom? What are the costs?

Shapiro posits that seeing education as an industry leads to a problematic testing culture focused on workplace skills, while edtech done right can help cultivate ethical intelligence, like how game-based learning can encourage self-reflection and empathy.
