“The technology itself is not transformative. It's the school, the pedagogy, that is transformative.”

Tanya Byron

British Psychologist

“Since we live in an age of innovation, a practical education must prepare a man for work that does not yet exist and cannot yet be clearly defined.”

Peter F. Drucker

Educator and Author

“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.”

David Warlick

Educator, Author and Programmer
