Using technology to do old things

Interesting video of Ian Jukes talking about how we initially use technology to do things we have always done. Then we start using it to do new things and this is where reformation happens. It has done this to the business world and is still to happen in education.

This is a goal of the OLPC.

I also see a connection with a recent posting on Weblogg-ed introducing a book written by David Weinberger. A quote from this book
One thing is for sure: When our kids become teachers, they’re not going to be
administering tests to students sitting in a neat grid of separated desks with
the shades down.

clearly demonstrates that David is of the same opinion and that significant reformation is coming.
