Thanks Christoph.

These are great points.

Related to your first point, I often try to challenge groups that that invite me to edtech hardware demos both (a) to try make the devices unbreakable in the relevant usage contexts, and (b) still assume they will break. What then?

Your second point, which relates what some might call 'forced obsolescence', is in my experience especially acute when talking about technologies used in school settings, where procurement processes can be quite drawn out, and where devices are almost always in use long past the planned-for or anticipated 'retirement' dates.
