Three from Cringely

For those who haven’t heard the name, Robert Cringely is a technology writer and has been for quite a long time. He had a series of three connected articles on technology and education recently, and I thought I’d pass them along. There’s a lot of good stuff in here about (in addition to the technology stuff) the massive role of student motivation in education.
