What If All the Computers Were Broken?

by David Wells Principal, January/February 2012 At the first meeting of a districtwide committee on integrating 21st century teaching and learning in our schools, I asked the committee members if they thought we could provide a 21st century education if all of our computers and devices suddenly broke. We thought about it for a moment and quickly agreed that you don’t need computers to provide 21st century learning because the essential concepts hinge on teaching rather than technology alone.
