    Teach Your Children Well: Technology in Education

    in Technology

    Everyone agrees that education in the U.S. is in dire need of improvement and that technology can play an important role. But that seems to be where the agreement ends. For students and teachers alike, to what degree can technology help us provide the education our children need to compete in the 21st century. Is technology one aspect of education in which we can ensure a level playing field?

    On this episode of MashUp Radio, Peter Biddle and education technology consultant and reporter Chris Dawson will discuss how technology and education come together. Peter and Chris will talk about topics that include the benefits of adopting open source software in educational environments, and whether the netbook or the iPad is better suited for today’s classrooms.

    Christopher Dawson grew up in Seattle, back in the days of pre-antitrust Microsoft, pre-Starbucks coffeeshops, and flannel-accompanied music. He escaped to the right coast in the early 90's and received an Information Systems degree from Johns Hopkins University. While there, he began a career in health and education IT that ultimately led him to become Technology Director for his local school district and finally to freelance writing and consulting in educational technology.
