Forbes: What Cutting Edge Looks Like In a School (2015)


http://www.forbes.com/sites/jennchoi/2015/08/10/what-cutting-edge-looks-like-in-a-school-2015/?linkId=16194659

This article is from Forbes contributor Jenn Choi, a former worker from the New York University School of Medicine's public relations office.

She makes some keen observations on what the "Cutting Edge" schools will look like this year. I believe that this article shows a growing philosophy that technology is only one tool that is utilized by the students and teachers. Technology is not the sole tool for learning. While looking through this article, I noticed that technology is only mentioned as one part of the "Cutting Edge" schools.

"Teachers are resourceful and creative. They can turn anything into a tool for teaching."

"The school invests in effective delivery (or effective learning), not just quality content."

"Technology is purchased wisely and efficiently."

"You see kids actually playing at school because the school understands that play is not a treat."
