    I enjoyed reading this article a great deal. I think it was well written, was excellent research, and had valuable data. My specialty is educational technology, and one would think I would be a cheerleader of technology over old-school methods, but that is not the case. As educators, we should embrace and use technology for the positive results it can bring. Instead, in the name of “keeping up with the Joneses” (aka politics, parents, and peer pressure), we often allow technology to drive our path, decisions, and methodologies despite how the brain works, despite the impact on social-emotional learning, and despite psychological or physiological realities. Thank you for putting the brakes on the speed of technology long enough for us to “sight see” the reality of the landscape.
