On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
In a few short years, technology has become a major component of K-12 education, from math games students can play at home to specialized AP classes offered only online. But now that most of human knowledge is just a keystroke away, some are asking whether we should be rethinking not just how kids learn, but what they learn, and what skills will be needed in a rapidly changing world. We explore the promise and peril of technology and education.
