A DREAMBOX DREAM: "I would like to see tech doing less drill and kill," says DreamBox CEO, Jessie Woolley-Wilson, in an interview with GeekWire. "I don't want technologies to be so focused on curriculum and competence that they lose sight of how important it is to inspire kids to try something they don't know." Wilson, who oversees a popular adaptive math program, is optimistic that technology can enable more project-based learning and de-risk experimentation in the classroom. "The school of the future," she believes, "will be age and grade agnostic."
