For someone who says we have to "rewire education" John Couch says a lot of things that sound like the same old thing. Apple’s former vice-president of education is plugging his new book Rewiring Education: How Technology Can Unlock Every Student's Potential. "I think there are parts," he says. "There's the iTunesU portion which allows you to distribute curriculum all over the world. There's a new application called Classroom, which allows a teacher to monitor the classroom. There's iBooks. If I were still calling the shots today, it would be about, “How do I take those individual functionalities and [put] them all together in a dynamic learning environment that's well integrated.” It's sort of the holy grail."
