Every tool we create and use is not driven simply by its technological affordances. There are also social drivers, and in the case of schooling and education, pedagogical ones.

But if they focus also on effectiveness, they might discover different or new ways of teaching. Like designing for small group collaboration or remote work or making thinking visible.
