He's Upset - About Technology

I recommend that you read and think about Throwing Spaghetti at the Wall, a recent blog post by Tim Holt on his blog Intended Consequences. Mr. Holt, Director of Educational Technology for the El Paso ISD, complains that there is too much technology being thrown at teachers, that it is unknown what curricula and what grade levels should use it and that there is no known purpose for a lot of the technology. As you evaluate Twitter, think of Mr. Holt's arguments and where they apply to Twitter and where they do not.

Thanks to Sharon_Elin for her tweet on this blog post.
