UNESCO: The Myth of Educational Reform Driven by Technology

1:1 computer initiatives are the latest iteration of the long-held mythical belief that education can be dramatically changed by the introduction of new technologies into the classroom. In 1913, the American inventor, Thomas Edison, was interviewed about the educational potential of the motion picture system that had been developed at his famous Menlo Park lab. Edison enthusiastically declared, “Books will soon be obsolete in the public schools. Scholars will be instructed through the eye. It is possible to teach every branch of human knowledge with the motion picture. Our school system will be completely changed inside of ten years.”
