Does Technology Always Trump the Past Time?

What are some of your most memorable moments of learning?

With the growing talk of edtech, technology appears to be only a step away from devouring the traditional education sphere. Yet, is there still irreplaceable value in the old school mode of learning?

The next step for EdTech is to foster and enhance those memorable moments in school, get teens excited to learn, and make students feel invested in their education anew. While I still have qualms about where EdTech is today, I predict that with time, there will only be more technology saturation, more tech-literate kids, and more opportunities to use tech in the classroom.
