I think educational technology/distance learning is the newest and most exciting chapter in education for a looooong time. If you look back at education 100 years ago, it is not very different at all from the way we teach now - huge classes of students of widely varying ability levels; teachers have limited quality interaction with their students. But distance ed allows for more targeted instruction and is incredibly stimulating for students. And while I don't recommend it as the only mode of instruction, I think it's a strategy that is simply long overdue. Looks like we're finally moving ahead in how to best teach so that kids actually learn...
