A couple good reviews of Evgeny Morozov's To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism, one from Mike Caulfield, the other from Audrey Watters. I don't have a whole lot to add, except to insist that I'm not a solutionist, that it is reasonable to aergue that the education system (amonbg other things) is broken, and to point to evidence that it is, without at the same time arguing tha 'tech will save everything'. But of course I think Morozov anticipates this sort of position, and generally embraces it. I think; I haven't read the book. Because, it being a book, it is pretty much inaccessible to me, since I can't send $30 to Amazon every time i want to skim somethintg, and since we hav nothing like a real library or bookstore in Moncton.
