Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory?

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory? | Social Media Classroom |

"Earlier this year, I penned a post titled 'The Audrey Test' in which I laid out a number of topics with which I argued education technologists (particularly ed-tech entrepreneurs) needed to be familiar if I was to take them at all seriously. The response – both in the comments section and elsewhere – were fairly revealing, I thought, particularly as some folks sneered at the notion that learning theories, histories, or sciences were at all relevant to building ed-tech products, services or businesses."
