  1. Hi Michael,

    I’m a reporter with Medill News Service, Northwestern University’s wire service. I’m working on an article about the opt-out movement organizing already for this year. Your insight would be greatly helpful!

    Hope to hear from you,

  2. Hello MIchael,

    My name is Jessica Sanders, I’m the Director of Social Outreach at Whooo’s Reading.

    I was wondering if you would submit a quote about the future of technology in schools for a feature article on our blog (, which gets more than 100K page views a month. This will be part of a large feature we’re doing for Digital Learning Day. Do you have any predictions about where edtech is going, what we need to take it to the next level, how we can better train our teachers, etc.? If so, a simple paragraph is all I need! I’ll link to your blog at the end of the quote as well.

    Thanks, I look forward to hearing back from you!

    • Good afternoon Jessica,
      Thank you for reading my blog and for taking the time to comment.

      The future of technology in schools is a great and quite a relevant topic! My prediction is that edtech will become ubiquitous and will become “education” in the short term. In the short term teachers will be freed up to design meaningful standards aligned learning opportunities for their students. Their use of technology tools will join with their eyes on creativity as opposed to the recent obsession with standardized tests. My prediction is that the power of technology tools will allow for greater creative deployment of activities and projects. I believe that there will be greater access to technology tools and infrastructure thanks to government and corporate interventions like the Future Ready Initiatives. I believe that the future trends toward project-based-learning and curation of content and creation of learning will overtake the “fill in the bubble” culture so pervasive in many school systems due to previous laws. As a nation we will move from consumers of knowledge to producers of knowledge in our schools thanks in part to the technology tools at our fingertips.
