How does one of the top-performing countries in the world think about technology?

This is a very interesting article about the inclusion of technology into the classroom from other countries. Singapore seems to be way ahead with technology than America which is quite ironic seeing as though the focus is on what the Americans invent technology wise.

What I like about the article is that it combines old school teaching with new school teaching. New meaning engaging the students with technology learning and old meaning general class discussions before computers.  Use the technology to engage the students for researching then ask the students to put tools down and have a general conversation about what they have discovered or learnt. Both teaching strategies can work together.
