Technology: Transforming Education?

SEE HERE  I have reservations about the idea that technology "transforms" education.  But it is certainly an hypothesis that will be explored in the coming years.  Much of technology seems more of a distraction than a help and before one heralds it as a breakthrough or even a useful aid, one needs to have a better definition in mind of just what education is.  I believe that education is not the learning of facts or even principles, but rather the development in the human person of the faculty of being a good learner so that you can educate yourself effectively no matter what comes up.  You need to learn how to think and develop yourself and not what to think.  The former is education the latter is indoctrination.

C.S. Lewis on "The Laws of Nature"

This is rather like a lesson in pictorial notetaking.
