From The Huffington Post: Strange as it may sound, we may be witnessing the death of “digital” — at least as an adjective. We don’t go “digital” shopping — we shop, online, by phone and in stores. We don’t read “digital” media — we read, on the printed page and on screens of every size. And we are not building a “digital” future, but simply a future, enhanced by the (incredible) tools of our time. While some advocate for technology as the key to higher student engagement and achievement, others worry digital tools will replace the teacher or hands-on, in-person learning. It’s a false dilemma. Today, students can learn from teachers in classrooms and at home on an iPad or Xbox. The two are not mutually exclusive, but in fact, this convergence of physical and digital makes for a potent combination.
