My Top 2 Edu Quotes

This quote by Mitch Resnick so perfectly sums up my current views on education in general.

“What we need to do is focus more on trying to assess the things we value, rather than value the things that are most easily assessed.” – Mitch Resnick (as heard on Freakonomics podcast) – MIT Media Lab

This quote by Kentaro Toyama is my go-to when kicking off a conversation about technology in the classroom.

“Technology’s primary effect is to amplify human forces, so in education, technologies amplify whatever pedagogical capacity is already there.” – Kentaro Toyama (as read in The Atlantic) – University of Michigan
