There’s also a great NPR ED story – Exploding The Myth Of ‘Unengaged’ Students related to his 4 Fundamental Problems With Everything You Hear About The Future Of Education article in Forbes. He argues against the notion that schools need to gamify instruction and leverage technology to engage students and make learning fun. Really interesting stuff!!
