"Wasting Time"

May 30, 2012

"WASTING TIME": Matt Richtel is back on the NYTimes' page 1 with a piece about how technology wastes time--particularly for low-income kids whose parents may not know how to monitor or guide their tech usage. That's exactly why we ran the DIY Learning Pavilion: it was all about how to turn kids into creators of knowledge and information, how to put them in control, rather than to have them be passive consumers. That's why the Maker movement matters--and a key way that technology can reinvent learning. Share your best ideas for helping students be knowledge creators--not just sponges--here.
