Digital Learning

This is an interesting video I found on Dan Meyer's blog, relating to the (non) use of digital technology in education.

I have no idea from whence the various statistics were sourced, but it's interesting to contrast how comfortable students are with technology, compared to their teachers.

While it's no surprise that adults, in general, are comparative Luddites; I just assumed educators would be a little more progressive.

I was also saddened by the statement that only half of US students finish high school. If that's accurate, it's a truly woeful situation.
