* "Students First, Not Stuff" by Will Richardson discusses how "technologies reframe learning, but educators reimagine schooling."

* "Our Brains Extended" by Mark Prensky discusses "What will humans do with their new enhanced capabilities?"

* "A Bold New Math Class" by Salman Khan and Elizabeth Slavitt discusses how "Khan Academy offers a student-centric, self-paced learning model."

* "New Literacies and the Common Core" by William Kist discusses "Strategies for learning the fundamentals of reading, writing, and comprehending in the information age."
