It’s All About Educationally-Appropriate Software
Posted by: Justina Spencer
Teachers are 21st-century knowledge workers, and students are 21st-century knowledge-workers-in-training. As such, they both need to use appropriate 21st-century tools to pursue their professional goals.

Yes, 21st-century knowledge workers (and knowledge-workers-in-training) need to use computers, but what is really important for them is the layer of software that rides on top of the hardware that creates a 21st-century work environment designed specifically for each of the 21st-century professions. For example, an accountant “lives in” a Quickbooks-like environment while a salesperson “lives in” a CR M— Customer Relationship Management—environment.
