We can't (and probably don't want to on balance) turn the clock back to a 19th century paradigm of exclusively text-based literacy. But what is the real "value added" from multimedia-intense instruction which may border on edutainment? This session takes a critical look at educational technology: the myths and the realities of technology's impact on student learning, and challenges teachers to focus on strategies which develop authentic literacy skills needed in the 21st Century.
