  1. A problem with most technology is that it does not complete the learning cycle. You may already be familiar with the reason and some reason dismissed it. But if not, writing about education reform, it can be helpful to understand a fundamental principle vastly underutilized in US schools–insuring that nearly all students get only superficial learning. It’s the strict correlation between practice and skill development of any kind–whether a physical skill or a zone of knowledge. Missing this is like trying to run a high-tech automobile while not understanding the principle behind the firing of gasoline. Get this right and classrooms turn around in a few days. No one’s fault, just a principle overlooked. Here are two links to brief articles explaining the idea:
