Mark follows up on my post on technology in education. He includes a reference to "Action Learning Environment (ALE), an open source environment for building experiential learning environments as interactive as classrooms at their best.". There we find this statement (emphasis mine):
The stampede to put 'computers in the classroom' (why?), and the rash of mindless web-based page-flippers being marketed as 'distance education solutions', show a deep and tragic misunderstanding of both technology and education.
This is right on the money.
