Although technology certainly creates its challenges its power in creating literate and globally connected kids who learn from each other may indeed have profound outcomes that humanity will benefit from.
“Kids are curious, and they are compassionate. To generate learning, nurture empathy. Kids willingly memorize the names of the countries in Africa, but they become keenly interested when they are providing malaria nets or helping to build wells that save lives of children who become their friends. This is no longer theoretical. Students can be collectively involved in studying math and simultaneously learn to become global citizens.”
