When most people hear someone talk about an education revolution, it is common to believe that they are talking about the role technology plays in changing the face of education. Many people argue that just throwing technology at education is not going to do much to improve the quality, and it’s a fair point. To properly infect education with technology, we need to be wise and strategic in how we build it into the system. There have been many recent developments in the educational-tech space recently; from supplying students with laptops and iPads in the classroom, to numerous education related apps at the app store. Probably the most prominent development is the advent of “online education,” and I’m not talking about another online learning management system.
