Leadership, technology and the future . . . technology of the future should benefit and improve the learning of students. Technology should take the learner to a higher level of understanding. Presently, I see it used in classrooms to replace tools that are already in place. For example, instead of encyclopedias, students google; instead of journals, students blog. It is doing the same thing in another format. While it provides alternatives for learning I don't see that it creates knowledge-isn't that the purpose of education? I realize we are moving in the right direction, however, we have a long way to go to catch up.
