Education and technology
Check out my article, "Technology Cannot Disrupt Education From The Top Down" over at TechCrunch.
To make a long story short, technology won't disrupt and improve public education from the top down because American public education has the money and muscle to resist and co-opt innovation at every turn. I advise entrepreneurs to sell to charter schools, private schools, virtual schools, home school networks or to the students. Often these type of schools have greater incentives to adopt new technologies in order to improve student learning and increase efficiency or lower costs.
