Another dot in the blogosphere?

Unchanged melody

Larry Cuban highlighted a segment of a report on ACOT (Apple Classroom of Tomorrow, a 1:1 computing project launched in 1985.)

I focus on a specific part of that segment. Cuban’s friend and researcher of that piece stated in May 1986: 

A number of ingrained characteristics of the existing system seem to run counter to a vision of students using computers as vehicles for exploration, independent learning, and individual pursuits.

If we cast a critical lens on ourselves today, the same thing could be said about how we still resist changing schooling methods despite having different media. This is how possibilities and potential die before they cry.
