Our current use of technology ineducation is a vehicle for telling us how far we havent come
• Much of the advances in technology in education have been around automating age old ways of learning
eBooks: Prime Example• eBooks not necessarily the future of technology in education‘• eBooks with the addition of the internet which connects readers with a global reading group, is more exciting
