Teaching and technology

361px-BigRedSmile_A_new_Computer.svg The New York Times has a series of really thoughtful and interesting short essays on different aspects of technology and the relationship technology has to teaching and learning. As you'll likely be able to tell from at least some of the titles, the common theme is that technology can be a tool for some kinds of things, but it can't actually cause the learning or replace the work that the learner does.

There's a lot of great and thought provoking material in there that will serve us as teachers well for a long time, unaffected by the rapid rate of change that rules technology itself.
