  • These are my thoughts on education, and the role of (mobile) technology as I have seen and experienced it over the past 30+ years, as a student, teacher, researcher, parent, and tax payer. We have some large issues we need to deal with in the near future if we want educational institutions to truly reconnect with the rest of society. I should also mention that what I’m going to show and talk about are broad generalizations and of course there are always exceptions to the rule.
