eSchoolNews: Five ed-tech stories to watch for in 2010 #in

Here’s a post from eSchoolNews about 5 Edtech stories of 2010. I found the article interesting but I have to say that I didn’t exactly agree with the author’s viewpoint on all the stories. I took particular offense to the author’s assertion that the reauthorization of NCLB (No Child Left Behind) was a good thing. From the conversations I’ve had with educators and the research I’ve done on my own, NCLB is the death knell of American education. Students are not getting the full benefit of an education, instead students get pushed through to the next grade just to make the schools look good. It’s the educational equivalent of  “cooking the books”. Of course that’s just one blogger’s humble opinion and I do agree that NCLB is an important part of improving education in America. I just think we need to get rid of it. This post was originally posted on eSchoolNews, which now requires you to login to read the complete story. More than likely any of my previous posts from this site will require you to login to view them. I’m a big fan of eSchoolNews and a free registration is a small price to pay for all the good information the site provides. Here’s the link to the story.  http://bit.ly/8BgObq
