I have followed the Digital Learning Now progress and listened to the various presentations done by former Governor Jeb Bush as well as his Foundation for Excellence in Education. I happened to see a tweet that led me to listen to a recent radio interview with former Sec of Education William Bennett. I appreciated their interchange and how Gov. Bush answered and responded to all of Bennett’s questions about online learning, attendance and digital learning.
Here is my paraphrase of one of their interactions:
- Bennett: Studies have shown that test scores are pretty flat for students who use technology
- Bush: Test scores are pretty flat for students in traditional schools.
