"It's not about devices, but learning' – Anthony Salcito | Higher EdTech | Scoop.it
MJO - Merlin John Online. Using technology for learning and teaching
Mark Ayton's insight:

It's easy to sell something new and harder playing catch-up. Is Anthony Salcito trying to divert our attention from the iPad by emphasising technique before technology, or just highlighting what good practitioners have always known?

Mark Ayton's insight:
