Tim Stahmer critiques a BBC segment on learning technology. "A BBC video starts by asking 'Could computer algorithms upgrade education?'" he writes. "It just gets worse from there." The video describes Alt School, a chain of private schools partially funded by Mark Zuckerberg. "The philosophy behind Alt School is very much driven by coding and data," writes Stahmer, "something that makes the video's note about the diminishing influence of teachers leading to a decline in good people entering the profession even more likely."
