  1. This is a welcomed addition to the discussion of edtech. There is still the pervasive idea that anything on a screen will increase learning. As I learned when working at http://yourhomeworkhelp.org/ I understood careful use of tech can result in increased learning, but it takes a competent professional to design lessons that fit the students and the goals of the classroom. Physics simulations can overcome misconceptions and the same simulation can have zero effect depending on how it is used. This is, of course, true of any educational tool or technique but I have found that this is often ignored when the topic is tech. Perhaps we will find in many years that the positive affordances of tech are more efficiency based, like document management, rather than \”transformational\” learning.
