(Only?) Good Enough for Other People's Children?

Date: September 26, 2014 
Time: 2 - 3 pm Eastern 
Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey and others

Can you identify the redacted reference in the quotation excerpted below?  The promising educational technology?  The decade?  The year of publication?

Plus ca change?  Is it time to end the "long history of optimism" about computers in education? From 1960s CAI to MOOCs, Badges, & iPhones today.

 "In <YEAR>, ...Stanford University <professor> was experi­menting with the use of <TECHNOLOGY> to teach reading and writ­ing to California schoolchildren. Despite...he saw almost limitless potential in the technology.  'One can predict that, in a few years, millions of school­children will have access to what Philip of Macedon’s son Alexander enjoyed as a royal prerogative: the services of a tutor as well-informed and as responsive as Aristotle,'”

    This session will explore the misguided? long history of optimism about the significance and permanence of new instructional technologies.  More quotes to identify, if you can!  See TLT-SWG blog.

       NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
