What would you say?

How many times have you had to defend the use of technology by students in school?  It could be from a colleague, parent, school administrator or random community member promoting the use of pencil and paper instead of keyboards and mice.  Dr. Scott McLeod over at Dangerously Irrelevant takes an actual example and does a great job responding point by point to the arguments proposed by a digital detractor.

I am stubborn in the vision that all students should have a personal student learning device in front of them today (yesterday actually). I am flexible regarding the details…the device, software, policys, etc.  Each educational organization needs to customize the details to reflect the specific parameters of their situation to ensure the program is scalable and sustainable.

What would you say…

…when some asks to you defend technology in schools?

…when promoting personal student learning devices (1:1)?

…when faced by someone that thinks writing needs to be painfully executed on paper?
