Here are my thoughts in response to this excellent Education Week piece by Matt Miles.
Thank you, Matt, for this vital piece. It’s about time! As a teacher, you clearly set out the downsides of tech addiction, research funded by technology that drives efforts for 1:1 technology, so-called “personalized instruction,” and other efforts. Thank you for that!
I will check out your blog, PaleoEducation.
I wish you, your book, and your efforts much success. The fact that they called you a “resister” is scary and shocking.
Please let us know how we can help get the word out. Of course, we are all well aware of the fact that many Silicon Valley gurus send their own children to schools, like Waldorf, that don’t use technology. HMMM. Really? Yes, really.
Well, too much technology–as public schools are being urged to provide– is not good for other people’s children, either.
Children’s addiction should be to learning, not to technology or social media.
