1. What do you think is the lens or perspective of This Magazine?

2. What do you think of the following quote from Jim Hewitt: “We are currently not doing a great job of training our teachers to use technology in educationally effective ways[.]”

3. What role should non-profit organizations play in making technology more accessible to our students?

  2. 2. I wonder why Jim believes that the teacher training program is ineffective with teaching technology. The MT program does model the integration of technology and social media with Pepper, student Facebook groups, and also technology use in most classes. While these technologies may not be consistent, and is definitely not perfect, I believe it is modelled with effectiveness.
