Mike, I'm glad to see you quoting Larry Cuban so appositely. But I suspect your final plea for a more informed discussion resulting from higher quality research, won't do much to counter the powerful marketing and cultural pressures that drive these large scale investments. The hyper-rhetoric around technology and what it can achieve shows not the least sign of abating, at least from where I stand.

I would argue the debate that should be taking place is that between people like me, who believe schools are highly effective learning tools, and the techno-zealots who I have often observed covertly dislike, even despise schools, and regard technology as a stick to beat them with.
