A free (yes rare but found here) article in The Chronicle exhorts educators to first determine what it is they want students to be, then apply technology to help attain that goal. Within the article, the author refers to a quote found in the New Science Center at John Carroll University:
“Technology has given you a power of inquiry greater than thinking individuals have ever possessed. Not to use it would be like not breathing.”
I may make that phrase the theme of this site.
