criticisms of edtech blasphemy!
BLASPHEMY! Check out Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Hiltzik's lengthy invective in the LATimes questioning the commercial motives behind the edtech push. He conjures up a lineup of "experts" to cast serious doubt on the value of tech tools. This formula sounds familiar but he cranked it up by calling last week's Digital Learning Day a "dog-and-pony show" "erected upon a sizable foundation of commercially processed claptrap." Yikes. Then again, seems like a lot of things make him grumpy.
