Schools seem very slow to add technology in ways that will actually enhance efficiency of learning. Almost all schools still use an assembly line approach or even worse, a job-shop/batch learning approach. Education is measured in years instead of in learning. Technology offers the opportunity for interactive paced learning that can accelerate students progress and dynamically help parents and teachers find ways for them to discover their individual gifts, passions and learning styles. The real progress though and the real savings wont show up by trying to tweak the old model. It's as though we're trying to figure out a better way to learn Morse code on the telegraph instead of trying an iPad.
