Somewhere along the line I tweeted the following:
This is not to say that the decision isn't an important one to make and that time should not be spent critically evaluating the choices from many perspectives. But, ultimately I don't think it is the most important question.
A follow up tweet by Amber Teamann prompted this blog post:
I'll keep this one short and sweet. As Amber suggests, lets do our best to keep the verbs (what students can do), ahead of the nouns (the device). Too often, a great deal of mindshare is spent evaluating, discussing, defending and justifying the nouns and precious time is lost that could be spent focusing on the verbs.
Thanks Amber, you get all the credit on this one...
