why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models. Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

Michael MacNeil‘s insight:

If our public education systems can’t keep up because digitizing at that level is quite costly, where does education go from there?  Who’s hands does it land in? Who will be left out? We all need to think this through, but be aware, technology is lapping us and lingering viability studies don’t help anyone.
