TELLING OF THE TIMES: The NYTimes, perhaps a little weary from the flak over Matt Richtel's pieces, has noticeably broadened its coverage with some pro-edtech reports. Daphne Koller, professor at Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Lab, shares a glass of bubbly optimism from having seen Khan and the Stanford online courses at work. Somini Sengupta reports a fairly standard run-through of Khan's model leading the way for personalizing learning in the classrooms. Not all is gravy, though, as Gail Collins joins the crusade against K12. Nothing overly inflammatory, maybe because they're content to letting Michael Bloomberg take the heat this week for his very un-PC remarks about teachers.
