Digital Promise

This isn't a new story: even PCs, which were widely available in classrooms by 2001, rarely had a real impact on classroom instruction. Ken Eastwood is the superintendent of Middletown City School District , NY, a member of our League of Innovative Schools. In terms of student proficiency, today's classrooms are more diverse than ever. We're "detracking" students previously sorted by ability. We're mainstreaming those with special needs. And we're serving more and more students who are just learning English. But follow-up studies showed a bigger problem.

Why Education Needs Augmented—Not Artificial—Intelligence


This discomfort has been capitalized upon—perhaps to an exaggerated extent—in movies like Terminator and 2001: Space Odyssey. Education technology has a public relations problem. In a space where words carry wide currency, our choice of language matters. That’s why I’m troubled by Artificial Intelligence (AI). At a time when educators need assurances that digital innovations will work for them, the fundamental premise of this technology may imply just the opposite. The term evokes the awkward connotation of machines displacing human capabilities. Support deeper instruction.

It has been amended nine times; the last in 2001. So school districts have had to interpret the law in different ways, as the technology landscape today looks very different than that of 2001.

But not all educational technology is good, of high quality, or even worth a student’s time. More importantly, not all educational technology is safe. New apps, websites and games come out every day and teachers are often excited and ready to try them.
