The challenges facing American education are formidable and seem to call for change more radical than incremental. For more than two decades technology has been "on the verge" of transforming education, yet from pre-K through higher education, for the most part school has remained unchanged. Is it possible that the force that has continually improved nearly every other facet of modern life will ultimately have no fundamental impact on education? Or are we finally at the brink of real change? In this talk Adrian Sannier will explore the unfulfilled expectations for technology in education and consider whether conditions are finally right for major change.
