“Technology is just a tool. It’s how the tool is used to support learning that is key,” he said. “This study had nothing to do with how technology can support learning. It was just, ‘Let’s put this in here, and see if it has any impact.’”

The results may have been different had the students had some guidance on how to best use the computers and if teachers  had been involved in connecting the home computers with what was going on in the classroom.

Really I guess a lot of this is stating the obvious, but obviously the obvious still needs to be stated.

The wheel didn't invent itself. Someone felt the need for such a tool, invented it, used it, and, fortunately for us, kept fine-tuning it. And from the wheel made of stone, we got the cart wheel, gears, car tyers and all the round things that make the world go round. So it what you make of tool that determines how much you get out of it. Obvious.
