I recently attended an education conference that was heavy on technology and innovation and light on anything that hinted at the wisdom of the ancients. Don’t get me wrong: I was glad to be there, and the speakers were much better than I had anticipated. But there was a determinism and a pessimism there was a little bit too much for me.
I’m looking forward to getting around to reading Andy Crouch’s The Tech-Wise Family, if only to have as a reference for others. Until then, I’ve got this recent WuMo strip to keep any technological optimism in check.
